Book Description

January 1, 2007 098032310X 978-0980323108 Limited edition
An eye-popping collection of fantastical, imaginative, pop- surrealist, and just plain twisted contemporary figurative art, executed with top- notch technique and mad skills by some of the finest and most influential artists working today. This book presents the work of 50 contemporary artists of the Surreal Art, Fantastic Realism, and Visionary Art traditions. The publishers have endeavored to compile a balanced publication, showing the extremes of both "light" and "dark" themes. The two extremes are usually presented separately, but here they are together under the umbrella of human experience. It features the work of extablished artists such as Ernst Fuchs, Alex Grey, Kris Kuski, Brom, and Robert Venosa, alongside that of relatively unknown, though extraordinary, artists, bringing a host of new artists into the public eye. The Metamorphosis series provides exposure for artists who express themselves imaginatively with exceptional technique and uncompromised individuality. Metamorphosis showcases this ever- expanding international movement of figurative artists who have resisted current trends in the art world and remained true to their artistic vision. Hardcover, color.

3.0 out of 5 stars The art of self promotion? May 11, 2010
This book is by Jon Beinart. It is a collection of artworks and illustrations which are accompanied with short summaries on the works and biographies on the artists all written by the artists and illustrators themselves. The book was edited by freelance editor, Robyn Flemming.

The first thing that should be emphasised is that this book is by Beinart, and it features Beinart's own work within his publication.

Beinart's web presence is maintained by his collaborator Leo Plaw; Leo Plaw's work too is featured in this publication.

Another of the artists to feature is Brigid Marlin; she "founded" the "Society for Art of Imagination" (as stated in this book). The "Society for Art of Imagination" is listed at the back of the book as one of the sponsors of this book.

Another of the sponsors is "ArtVisionary" magazine. Though the founder of "ArtVisionary" (Damian Michaels) does not have any of his works reproduced in this book, his works appear in the subsequent edition of this book "Metamorphosis 2".

Other artists whose works appear are:
- Andrew Gonzalez, whose works are airbrushed versions of the compositions of the Symbolist artist Jean Delville (eg Delville's Parsifal, 1890, The Love of Souls, 1900, etc). At least one of the Gonzalez images in this book is from the collection of "ArtVisionary" (as per the catalogues "Fantastic Art" and "Fantastic and Visionary Art" that accompanied the Orange Regional Gallery exhibition, & Orange Gallery Touring Exhibition, in Australia, 2003-2004); another work, this time by Kim Evans, is also part of the ArtVisionary collection (also exhibited in the Orange Gallery exhibition).
