"The Last American Painter"
Last Gasp, San Francisco
Preis: CHF 43.-(exkl. Versand)


The ritualistic, sexual and political mixed media paintings and performances of Native American artist Reverend Steven Johnson Leyba reflects our times with his relentless and fiercely unapologetic vision. Redeemer of the swastika and desecrator of the Amerikan flag “to mock blind nationalism and patriotism” Leyba is a master of art associal satire, giving birth to controversies and theoretical debates alike. A legally ordained priest in the Church of Satan, Leyba has been a prominent figure in the debunking of christianity and its role in the American Holocaust. Oil and acrylic over collage, beadwork, urine, excrement, human hair and semen, as well as sex and blood rituals comprise his mediums of choice. Layer upon layer of textured content inspired by his religion and heritage (Apache, Creek, Navajo, Cherokee, Irish, Swedish and Welsh), gives voice to the rage and politics of this “Satanic Apache.” Several artists / writers, including luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Poppy Z. Brite, David Aaron Clark, Charles Gatewood, Bily Warsoldier, H.R. Giger and feminist Susan Wright offer their personel insights into Leyba’s work with introductions to each of his five hand-made books.
