A Talk with Tara McPherson

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 06, 2009
Tara McPherson’s work is like snagging intimate and thought provoking glimpses of people and creatures of an alternate universe, crossing dimensional planes of time and space to simultaneously comfort and disturb.

" Lost Constellations: The Art of Tara McPherson Volume 2"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 11, 2008
Loss, love, and loneliness. Altered forms and transfigured ideas. Power and vulnerability. Parallel universes of the heart and mind. Space and time. In a few brief years, the stunning visual oeuvre of Tara McPherson (Juxtapoz #72) has grown and evolved at thrilling speed. Expanding beyond the limits of rock poster art into the worlds of commercial illustration and fine art, her paintings, drawings, toys, sculptures, and installations have pushed her influence and authority across the breadth of creative expression and helped redefine the boundaries of pop surrealism. Lost Constellations: The Art of Tara McPherson Volume 2 is the compelling road map to the artist's most recent and ambitious journeys in paint, pencil, and sculpture. “The book goes to print this week and will be out by next April. We are hoping to have a couple cases of advance copies for Flatstock 20/SXSW in Austin in March. (Cross your fingers!)” Tara told us. “I am also planning a book tour in the US and Europe this summer, so be on the lookout for dates to be announced.” Pre-order available now through Dark Horse.
