  • Editors Notes

    Lush and psychedelic digital depictions of flowersSince the early 1960s, multimedia artist Lucas Samaras (born 1936) has worked across mediums to advance a Surrealist idiom that departs from the trappings of Abstract Expressionism and Pop art. Over the decades, his interest in self-representation and object transformation has expanded to include experimentations in photography and—beginning in 1996, when he obtained his first computer—digital art. This volume, conceived and published by Pace Gallery, narrows the scope of Samaras’ oeuvre to focus on his psychedelic digital distortions of flowers.

    It comprises 110 color images featuring flora of all kinds: in gardens, along sidewalks, in landfills or superimposed onto kaleidoscopic abstract backgrounds. Taken together, these augmented images form an intriguing part of Samaras’ recent work.
