Summary "Performer, painter, and photographer, Teun Hocks plays the role of "an innocent Everyman in an always strange and often funny world," as Janet Koplos has noted. In scenes that range from burlesque to tragicomic, his Buster Keaton-like persona perseveres, struggling to find stable ground in an unstable, often absurd universe. Life's complications and challenges may take the form of impossible Rube Goldbergian contraptions or of odd and unforgiving environments fraught with psychological implications. Each resonant image captures one moment of an implied narrative, triggering inevitable questions about how the protagonist got himself into such a peculiar fix and what in the world will happen next." "The wit, technique, and colors of Teun Hocks's images combine to form the original oeuvre represented in this volume. In addition to his painted photographs, the book includes several drawings as well as a series of images that illuminate his creative process from start to finish. Based in the Netherlands, Teun Hocks has exhibited his work around the world, from Europe to Asia to North America, but this is his first monograph to be published in the United States."--BOOK JACKET
