After selling out its first printing, "It Is Folly To Assume My Awesome Lies Dormant" is back in print.
Matt Adrian's lush acrylic paintings of birds range from the delightfully cute to the decidedly sinister. Collected in this 80-page, hardcover art book, these uniquely soulful portraits of a stunning variety of bird species seem to gaze out at the world with an intensity of feeling and emotion.
Adrian's unique titles for the paintings seek to juxtapose the singularly primal existence of birds with that of the folly of modern human existence, leading to such titles as "A Financially Unstable Mess, But At The Liquor Store They Call Me Ma'am" and "I Have Seen The Interiors Of Cloud Formations That Make Your Cathedrals Look Like Wal-Marts." These titles combine with the vibrant paintings to make this a thoroughly entertaining volume unlike any other.
Printed on the highest quality art paper, each vividly reproduced painting has been given a subtle spot varnish, adding to the richness of each image.
If you would like the book signed or signed and inscribed, please let me know in the message to seller at checkout, and I would be happy to do that for you.
