Press:Green Candy Press Green Candy Press; 1st edition (July 15, 1998)
Publication Date:1998-07-15
Author Name:Jim Jarmusch,Harold Schechter


Artist Joe Coleman's ORIGINAL SIN contains visually stimulating and radically graphic nightmarish images.
Filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, historian Harold Schechter and art critic/poet John Yau contribute essays to this extremely dark "coffin table" book.
Joe's work is often compared to illuminated manuscripts because of the great detail contained within each piece.
His acrylic paintings depict acts of violence, some of which even include gory details of various body parts.
Both sexual and revolting, the book contains material that may not be suitable for everyone.

  •     Outstanding
  •     Joe Coleman is represented in other books, but the essays in this book , along with the reproductions, give the viewer an intimate glimpse into the twisted and detailed paintings of joe coleman! a bargain!
  •     Nothing can prepare you for a Joe Coleman painting if you've never seen one before-- the beauty of these works will literally rip your eyeballs from your skull. With a scholarly, yet fierce courage Coleman reinvents the characters and scenes he portrays, with a technical skill which borders on the supernatural. In a recent show in Rotterdam, Coleman's work was hung beside those of Hieronymus Bosch, a deserved honor.The essays in this book are excellent, describing Coleman's ground-breaking history as a performance artist as well as a painter. The design of the book by Katharine Gates is beautiful, and enhances appreciation of Coleman's work. I recommend this book to anyone who cares about art in the early 21st Century (or the 15th Century for that matter!).
  •     Unique work that is overlooked. All work has a very narrative-illustrative style. Srong line quality, color and composition. For a viewer with the ability to explore.
