First book to collect the work of L.A. underground art world's wunderkind. Beautifully produced and co-published with La Luz de Jesus, this is an objet d'art in itself, revealing the complexity of Elizabeth McGrath's sweetly twisted creatures, giving a glimpse of what the Island of Misfit Toys might have become had it been saved by Satan rather than Santa. Upon first viewing, McGrath's colourful, mummified creatures are gothic oddities, but their undeniable artistry immediately draws one in, revealing their touching curiosities, transforming their grotesqueness into tortured beauty. Each piece is meticulously sculpted, dressed and decorated in exquisite detail.

For those of you who prefer traditional/classical art, I challenge you to pick it up. For those of you who already love works of “lowbrow” art, this is definitely eye candy at its best. Yum! For more of this sophisticated fare, you may also want a taste of INCURABLE DISORDER: Art by Elizabeth McGrath. It’s refreshing!
There's more to be found on the web about her influences, her world and there's even a peep into her studio and her living and workspace. McGrath's art seems to draw on bits of life we might sooner keep in the background, but which fascinate us all the same...sideshows, freaks, the darkness that religion can harbor, and that ol' grim reaper. Her art can bubble with that uncomfortableness we feel when we brush up against the those gristly and grisly things that live in our dreams and nightmares but also draw us to them irresistibly.
In spite of the description above, her work breathes with a tenderness and human warmth that makes one feel protective about her pieces when you view them, almost as if you're looking into the cage of a rescued animal at a humane shelter.
McGrath has the eye of a naturalist, and though some of her work seems cobbled together from taxidermist's leftovers, she presently uses no animal parts in her art. If you appreciate the vision of artists like Edward Gorey and Tim Burton along with an original mix of old museums, funeral parlors and faded circus sideshows, this book is for you. Elizabeth McGrath is a totally original artist.
The book is beautifully printed and presented as well and makes a perfect gift for that special someone.
