"Californian artist Ed Templeton delivers up his diagnosis of the contemporary human condition in a whirlwind of present-tense imagery filtered through photographs, paintings and drawings. Over the past decade and a half, Templeton has built an oeuvre that closely tracks his day-to-day reality, recording life in the Southern Californian suburbs, his flawed family background, his life as a professional skateboarder, his milieu, the relationship between the artist and his muse (his wife Deanna) and much else. What begins as a very personal chronicle ultimately opens out onto grander horizons-in Templeton's case, a broad meditation on the chaos and the joy of being human. Presented as a mid-career retrospective accompanying a spring 2010 exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum voor Aktuele Kunst in Ghent, Belgium, "The Cemetery of Reason" is the first large monographic museum publication devoted to Templeton's work. It combines and juxtaposes works in various media from the past fifteen years with new works and series, all reproduced in two hundred and sixty color images, thus providing the most comprehensive overview of Templeton's work available". A most handsome copy additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Ed Templeton" in black ink at the bottom of the front free endpaper.
