RITA DE MUYNCK: UNDER THE SKIN/UNTER DIE HAUT. Ed. by Andrea C. Theil. Hirmer Verlag, Munich, n.d. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press, 2014. 174 pp. (one foldout) with 152 col. ills. 28 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783777421827 Bilingual in German and English.
The ISBN appears on the back cover only. Publisher's description: Dreams, the subconscious, and the involuntary sensual associations of synesthesia are among the forces that find expression in the large-scale figurative paintings and droll day-and-night drawings of Belgian contemporary artist Rita De Muynck. Expressionistic and richly colored, De Muynck's paintings draw viewers into a rich world of sensual experience. This lavishly illustrated book--the first to turn the focus on de Muynck's body of work--presents the artist's paintings, drawings, installations, and sculptures from 1998 to the present alongside an interview with de Muynck and a selection of essays and literary and scientific texts. Together, the paintings and writings in Rita De Muynck: Under the Skin contribute to an understanding of how the artist's distinct style is characterized by the interconnectedness of the senses and the expression of existential experience.
