Stu Mead – Private Zone
Housed in pink hardback, Private Zone chronicles the contents of Mead's private sketchbooks from 2001 - 2007.
Like the more risqué etchings of Norman Lindsay, Stu's sketches reveal the artists' personal fantasies in uninhibited exhibitionism. Girls drift through scenes as both passive and enthusiastic instigators of erotic stimuli. Their presence accompanied by the surreal - demons, perverts & members of clergy - to the mundane surroundings of everyday life.
"Stu Mead does not talk about what he shows, he talks through what he shows. He addresses himself to a part of us, to a part which, still today, stays in confusion; and he talks about that in a humorous way."
- Foreword by Ramuntcho Matta (Stu Mead paintings collector / musician (who collaborated among others with Brion Gysin) / son of surrealist painter Roberto Matta)
