A collection of the extraordinary art of Val Denham (b. 1957) is a transgender artist, collagist, poet, and musician. Best known for her art, Denham's work has appeared as sleeve/cover art for recordings by Marc Almond, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and others. Sometimes described as an "Outsider artist" the publishers of thiw book quote Denham as saying "I employ a figurative and non-figurative semi surrealist symbolism…my art is a kind of therapy…the internal map of my neuroses, severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Gender Dysphoria…analyse the surface of Tranart (Val’s name for her own art) and you glimpse neurotic hieroglyphs trying to describe what it is to be me…meanings are always masked in a kind of visual code within my work. Even now I employ obscuring patterns and imagery; though the reason to do so no longer exists…I no longer live a double life suppressing my true nature, but the code remains." Book somewhat leaned, a few light bumps to corners and edges. Otherwise a tight, clean VG+ copy (no dust jacket issued). A very large, heavy book. Additional shipping to that automatically quoted will be required, dependent upon destination. Item #70662
