Glaswegian artist Roderick Abercrombie Smith and New Yorker Sam Wagner met by chance in a downtown Los Angeles bar. Smith’s drawings – wild renderings of frenetic figures, elegiac crowned heads, allegorical vessels adrift on unknown seas and oppressively-compressed crowd scenes – sparked Wagner’s darkly-comedic musings. Their shared vision is erudite, morbid and richly ironic. It is also strangely uplifting, with moments that are laugh-out-loud funny.
This volume is edited with an introduction and commentary from Neil Baxter. Smith and Wagner’s creative double act is exceptional.
