Published in conjunction with the exhibition "Richard Artschwager: Objects as Images of Objects" at the David Nolan Gallery in New York from October 4 to December 6, 2008. From Foreword: "The drawings illuminate his elusive thought process by reavealing Artschwager as the anti-stylist, or, to borrow an evocative metaphor from Alexi Worth, a platypus, a unique and awkwardly uncategorizable creature, exalting him to the position of the art historical missing link between Pop Art and Minimalism."
