Drawing her influence from classic TV shows and paintings by the Old Masters—for example riffing on Géricault's Raft of the Medusa by replacing the figures with characters from Gilligan's Island—Samaras has created a witty, erotic, and surreal body of work. This fresh and dazzling volume includes a three-way interview between Samaras and fellow low-brow artists Shag and The Pizz, as well as delightful and enlightening commentary from gallerist Justin Giarla and art writer Colin Berry, and an erotic short story by Lucy Blue.
Artist Isabel Samaras's work has been featured in numerous books, magazines, television shows, and a documentary film. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
