Edwin Ushiro's New Book!

If you're a fan of the incomparable Edwin Ushiro, you'll want to get a signed copy of his new monograph, "Gathering Whispers," from Zero+ Publishing before their introductory offer runs out! I assure you that you will not be disappointed in the scope or quality of this deluxe edition, which contains an in-depth introduction written by me.

Edwin Ushiro: Gathering Whispers is a haunting monograph that explores the work of Edwin Ushiro, whose atmospheric paintings recapture the ecstasy, wonder and dread that illuminated and shadowed the endless summer days of his childhood in Hawaii. With an introduction by Giant Robot founder and curator Eric Nakamura and an essay by yours truly (Amanda Erlanson) that delves into the cultural, historical and personal backdrop of Ushiro’s vision, and featuring 71 impeccably reproduced color plates, this deluxe volume provides a wealth of insight into the ethereal world of a gifted and enigmatic artist.
