A special edition of 15 catalogues have been hand-painted and numbered by Reginald Sylvester II. Covered with lively reds and soft whites, these unique books are now available on our website for purchase.
Published on the occasion of NEMESIS, Reginald Sylvester II’s exhibition inaugural exhibition at Maximillian William, London, NEMESIS includes all works in the series, including “A War Within the Soul vs the Flesh”, a vibrant diptych which encapsulates the struggle between the needs of the soul and the desires of the flesh. High resolution shots of each work fill the pages with seductive and chaotic colours, bringing to life the artist’s inner faith and turmoil. Each fully illustrated exhibition catalogue is accompanied by a scholarly text by Michele Robecchi of Phaidon Press.
“[Sylvester’s paintings], invariably defined by potent brushstrokes that generate surprisingly delicate forms, do not just tell the story of his own personal struggle – they are the result of a gestural and compositional discord where his subjects are constantly dematerialized and reconstructed in their quest for giving a shape to the fragility that characterize[s] human existence.” – Michele Robecchi, Phaidon Press
