Featuring rarely seen multimedia works by the revered cult filmmaker David Lynch, this revelatory book shows how he applies his powerful imagination and visual language across genres. David Lynch has always been in the spotlight as a filmmaker, directing some of the most iconic movies ever made, but as a visual artist, he is less widely known. Lynch delights in the physicality of painting and likes to stimulate all the senses in his work. This book brings together Lynch's paintings, photography, drawings, sculpture and installation, and stills from his films. Many of these works reveal the dark underpinnings behind Lynch's often-macabre movies. Others explore his fascination with texture and collage. Throughout, Lynch's characteristic style--surreal, stylish, and even humorous--shines through. An introduction by music journalist and Lynch biographer Kristine McKenna, along with a thought-provoking essay by curator Stijn Huijts, offers fascinating new information and perspectives on Lynch's life and career. This book reveals an unexplored facet of Lynch's oeuvre and affirms that he is as brilliant a visual artist as he is a filmmaker.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..".a gorgeous volume of Lynch's painting, photography, sculpture, and short-film stills." -Slant Magazine

"The heavy matte paper of the book with its lush color reproductions renders an intriguing, mesmerizing hold that you are drawn back to repeatedly...David Lynch's Someone Is in My House is as unsettling as its title, but it is also a compelling book for anyone who is drawn to Lynch's 'unique' creative outlook." -Richard Rivera, New York Journal of Books

"There's much more in this well-proportioned 304-page collection, certainly an essential item for the Lynch devotee in your life." -The Tangential

"Someone Is In My House will be indispensable to the avid Lynch collector, but this book truly shines as an introduction to Lynch's various art forms." -This is Darkness
