This is the first comprehensive overview of the career to date of British artist Hurvin Anderson (b.1965). Anderson is known for painting loosely rendered 'observations' of scenes and spaces loaded with personal or communal meaning. Anderson's painting style is notable for the ease with which he slips between figuration and abstraction, playing with the tropes of earlier landscape traditions and 20th-century abstraction. His paintings of barbershop interiors, country tennis clubs and tropical roadsides teem with rich brushwork and multitudes of decorative patterns or architectural features, at once obscuring and adding to underlying ruminations on identity and place. Drawing on interviews with the artist, Michael J. Prokopow offers a critical assessment of Hurvin Anderson's painting practice to date that will be enlightening for all students, dealers and collectors of contemporary painting.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Hurvin Anderson is in many ways a painter both of our time and for our time, able to lend abstraction and representation in equal measures of surety and wonder. Prokopow offers the first substantial exploration of Anderson's nearly three-decade practice in a manner that replicates the deep examination that his paintings require of and ignite for the viewer. This is a thoughtful, careful text that has superbly brought forth a painter of similar description.' -- Courtney J. Martin * Director, Yale Center for British Art *
'Written with clarity, care and precision, this monograph is hugely welcome. It is the first to give in-depth attention to an artist whose eloquent touch has revitalized painting in a moment when our perception of landscape and our attachment to a sense of place grows ever more complex in light of transnational migrations and the fragile ecology of our planet.' -- Kobena Mercer * Author of Travel & See: Black Diaspora Practices since the 1980s *
