The images range from Williams' familiar lowbrow and biker culture, stretching deep into a faux science of quantum mechanics leaving the viewer in a world of scientific mindplay.

Robert Williams sprang from the custom car culture of Southern California and was one of the original Zap Comix artists. He transcended the constraints of both, mastering oils and forging a career as the preeminent artist among a generation of imagist painters. After singlehandedly becoming the model of Lowbrow art, Williams has now penetrated the inner sanctum of the fine arts movement. Hardbound, color.

'Seeing what Robert Williams and S. Clay Wilson had done just gave me the last little push I needed to let open the floodgates.' -R. Crumb

'He's the finest mechanic I know of, including Picasso and Rembrandt and all of those guys...' -Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth
