Chuck Sperrys new book Helikon gathers together his masterfully screen printed wood panel series of contemporary-classical muses: work inspired by the spirit of the modern rock poster, graffiti, and the utopian ethos of 1960s psychedelia. Helikon presents 36 sumptuously photographed Sperrys paired with the prose or poem from Homer to Nick Cave that inspired each. Over a dozen photos by Shaun Roberts give the reader an intimate portrait of the artist at work.
Helikon is Sperrys beautifully designed, hand-bound coda to 5 years of artwork devoted to the perennial theme of Orphic Dionysian mysteries.
