Academy Award nominee for Best Original Song , Antony of Antony and the Johnsons pres­ents his debut collection of visual art, thought-provoking dreamscapes composed of paintings, drawings, photogra­phy, collage, song lyrics, and writings. Often fragmentary images, these pieces capture liminal states and elements of the unconscious. Some images are reclaimed and reconfigured in order to transcend their previous form. The intersecting mediums inform each other and create an interesting dialogue with Antony’s music, his creative muse, and personal mythology.

Fans and collectors will relish this lavishly produced volume, which includes Antony’s newest full-length CD Swanlights, and reveals the creative process of one of the world’s most gifted artists.
