Carol Wainio: The Book (2010)


Essays by Don Beecher and Randy Innes

84 pages, illustrated, hard cover


Carol Wainio’s recent work comprises an extended reflection on the subject of storytelling, the art of the copyist, and the social transformations in contemporary society engendered by mass production. Essays by Donald Beecher and Randy Innes offer illuminating insights into the paintings’ sources, such as the Puss in Boots folk tale, and discuss the book as a figure of modernity that Wainio systematically calls into question in her paintings.
