This stunning book offers an important mid-career retrospective of the work of American artist Richard Hawkins (born 1961), whose paintings, collages, and mixed-media pieces are making a crucial contribution to the contemporary art scene. Color plates present approximately 80 of Hawkins’s works, representing each stage of his career and including pieces never before published.

Based in Los Angeles, Hawkins addresses numerous contemporary issues in his art, especially those related to gender and identity and their connections to classical antiquity. The authors of the catalogue provide informative essays on aspects of Hawkins’s work, the development of his vision, and his unique place in the contemporary art world.

Lisa Dorin is assistant curator in the Department of Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago. Ali Subotnick is a member of the curatorial team at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. George Baker is a well-known art critic and an associate professor of art history at UCLA.
