(CERVENKA, EXENE). CERVENKA, EXENE. PREFACE BY KRISTINE MCKENNA - MAGICAL METEORITE SONGWRITING DEVICE: COLLAGES BY EXENE CERVENKA

Title: MAGICAL METEORITE SONGWRITING DEVICE: COLLAGES BY EXENE CERVENKA
Description: Santa Monica, CA, Perceval Press., 2006, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-9763009-2-3) Illustrated Boards, Small Square 4to, 50pp, profusely illustrated in color. Hot off of Viggo Mortensen's Perceval Press, this is a visually arresting book of legendary X vocalist and poet Exene Cervenka's artwork! "Exene Cervenka's provocative collages, which have garnered high praise in recent New York and Los Angeles gallery shows, are accompanied in this volume by a preface from Kristine McKenna. There is, in McKenna's words, "an ineffable melancholy that permeates" Cervenka's art, and a "haunting power to evoke a childhood lost." In the work represented, you will find a "scent of longing and nostalgia.. It is invariably tempered with the essential spirit of her art, which is tender and lyrical. In the end, each piece she's made is a valentine to a fragile America that's disappearing before our very eyes, and an homage to the indomitable persistence of beauty". A brand new, most handsome example of the 2006 first edition.. Fine/No Jacket - As Issued.
