Storm Clouds Release
My new book is available finally, click here to purchase: Murphy Books
We worked hard on this book and I feel it does a good job of capturing what I've been up to for the past three years. Here's some pictures and the press release:
Jeff Soto's, second installment, "Storm Clouds," features paintings that evolve beyond the robotic characters featured in the sold out, "Potato Stamp Dreams." "Storm Clouds" captures new painted territory that record Jeff's concerns for the well being of his family, the fragile condition of politics, the changing forces of nature and moments for personal exploration and experimentation.
This hard cover volume features 154 pages, specialty printing techniques and over 264 high-quality, full color images. Featured commentary provided by David Choe, Peter Frank (Senior Curator of Riverside Art Museum), Jeff Soto and Mark Murphy. The Riverside Art Museum and the James Irvine Foundation provided initial support, as they will be featuring Jeff in his first museum show in December of 2008.
