My Second Edition / “Silver Edition” of “Helikon” will be on sale again, starting February 5, 2017. (My second stage release of this edition.)
It is the same high quality hardcover book – inside and outside – as the First Edition / “Gold Edition”, back by popular demand! The cover is silver embossed on slate toned canvas, the book comes shrink-wrapped, unnumbered and unsigned.
Chuck Sperry’s new book “Helikon” gathers together his masterfully screen printed wood panel series of contemporary-classical muses: work inspired by the spirit of the modern rock poster, graffiti, and the utopian ethos of 1960’s psychedelia.
“Helikon” presents 36 sumptuously photographed Sperrys paired with the prose or poem — from Homer to Nick Cave — that inspired each. Over a dozen photos by Shaun Roberts give the reader an intimate portrait of the artist at work.
“Helikon” is Sperry’s beautifully designed, hand-bound coda to 5 years of artwork devoted to the perennial theme of Orphic Dionysian mysteries.
Forward by New York Times’ bestselling author, Charles Bock, Beautiful Children, Alice & Oliver (Random House), and Best of NYC Culture 2016, Village Voice.
