JONATHAN WEINER: TRANQUIL AFTERMATH A New Book Published by Jonathan LeVine Gallery in Partnership with Murphy Design
New York, NY June 2006 – Tranquil Aftermath, the highly anticipated collection of works by artist Jonathan Weiner, is now available. Introductory texts by John Purlia and Jonathan Weiner with a closing article written by Jonathan LeVine, frame over seventy-two full color reproductions, sketches, and family photographs in the first of many volumes. Designed and distributed by Mark Murphy of Murphy Design, Tranquil Aftermath is a currently available for sale at the online store at www.jonathanlevinegallery.com.
This limited-edition of 2500 copies is the first book published by Jonathan LeVine Gallery in partnership with Murphy Design. A book signing event will be held at Jonathan LeVine Gallery on June 10th from 3pm-6pm in conjunction with the closing of Jonathan Weiner’s first solo exhibition, The Attacker’s Move. Through allegory, surrealism and distinctive style, Jonathan Weiner confronts themes facing New York’s contemporary society. He renders curious and complex narratives with foreboding landscapes to illustrate themes of violence, alienation, morality and power. Weiner’s distinct palette, ethereal spaces, and dramatic subjects can be studied meticulously throughout the pages of this collection. Alternating colors and compositions, cropped in various formats, offer an intimate perspective into the artist’s world.
Tranquil Aftermath is beautifully reproduced on archival paper, hard bound and smythe-sewn. The front and back inside-cover highlights a simple and refined sketch of a boy with a gun, playfully mirrored, creating a mysterious and contemplative narrative. Fans of Jonathan’s work will enjoy sixty-seven pages of sketches and oil paintings, including Tranquil Aftermath, Puncture Wound and the Playing with Kittens series. A Deluxe Limited Edition series is to be released at a later date. This limited edition of 150 copies will only be available at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The Deluxe Limited Edition will include a one-of-a-kind, original drawing by Jonathan Weiner and will be packaged in a cloth-covered slipcase sealed with a red foil stamping.
