Knowledge Comes with Gas Release

Author(s): Gary Baseman


This book is a sample of the Gary Baseman's latest series of paintings, "Knowledge Comes With Gas Release". 'I removed the narrative and concentrated solely on the iconic nature of my work. I simplified the main subject, so I could become more complex with the design form of the Manifestations of Desire. I challenged myself to interact with the portrait element in the most extreme way possible. Desire now not only lives in the atmosphere, but also on the figure itself. The figure wears desire like a hat, hair, beard, ears, pimple, flowers, pollen. Open to all and every interpretation. Melting, dripping, clinging, oozing, dripping, dripping, dripping. The desire bubbles have popped' - Gary Baseman.
