 About the Book 

Most viewers will associate the Swiss artist Olaf Breuning with high-production-value film and photography projects, not low-tech, pointedly handmade work like these sketches. But on a recent trip from England to New York on board the ship The QueenMoreMost viewers will associate the Swiss artist Olaf Breuning with high-production-value film and photography projects, not low-tech, pointedly handmade work like these sketches. But on a recent trip from England to New York on board the ship The Queen Mary II, he sat down and made 73 direct, powerful and funny drawings. They combine memory with daydream, humor and subversion, and they concentrate the references to media, popular culture, and consumer dreams that appear in his multimedia work. Anthropomorphized lipsticks smile out and cute little mushroom clouds swirl up. So do fireworks, and a Comfort Dragon uses his many arms to carry a cell phone, radio, coffeepot and plant. Breunings solo exhibition venues have included the Swiss Institute and Metro Pictures in New York, as well as other international galleries and museums.
