Wes Lang to release a definitive and long overdue monograph entitled “Wes Lang: Everything”, revealing his extraordinarily prolific career and also offering a biographical glimpse into the life of the notably private Wes Lang himself.
Published by Rizzoli and introduced with an exploratory essay by the critic Arty Nelson, the book draws on more than 25 years’ worth of material, from stark paintings on wood that formed the artist's first exhibition to richly layered oil paintings exhibited in Paris in 2020, and from the countless unpublished works which go direct from studio to collector that never reach the public consciousness, to imagery made iconic by his enigmatic commercial collaborations. Oversized and with pull-out gatefold pages, the book is testament to the scope and richness of Lang's work: expansive in its iconography, deceptively intimate in its detail, and juxtaposing a textured, painterly style with a playful acceptance of the diversity of his own influences.
The book is currently available for preorder and will be released on September 28, 2021. Follow any of these links to go directly to the book's ordering page.
