I provide the board, the pieces and the dice, but you are the ones that have to play‘ – Douglas Gordon

Over the past decade Douglas Gordon has received recognition as one of the most exciting and challenging British artist working today. His deployment of pre-existing material, most spectacularly illustrated in his use of Hitchcock’s iconic thriller in his work 24 Hour Psycho (1993), attracted particular attention. Katrina M. Brown explores the relationship between word and image, remembering and forgetting, good and evil, and love and hate that permeated Gordon’s work. Interviews with the artist provide revealing insights into his video, photographic, audio and text-based works. With over 100 colour illustrations.

Modern Artist Series, affordable and accessible and authoritative, Modern Artists are an essential reference for all those interested in contemporary British art.
