About this item
With a visual style inspired by the aesthetics of animation and silent comedy, Tim Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre film making over the past three decades, melding the exotic, the horrific and the comic, and manipulating expressionism and fantasy with the skill of a graphic novelist. Published to accompany a major retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume considers Burtons career as an artist and filmmaker. It narrates the evolution of his creative practices, following the current of his visual imagination from his earliest childhood drawings through his mature oeuvre.
Illustrated with works on paper, moving-image stills, drawn and painted concept art, puppets and maquette's, storyboards, and examples of his work as a graphic artist for his non film projects, this exhibition catalogue sheds new light on Burton and presents previously unseen works from the artists personal archive.
