David Shrigley: ERR
Book Works, 2019
Shrigley’s work has been described as having the ability to make one laugh and cry at the same time. Working across different media – drawing, sculpture, photography and painting – Shrigley’s output defies categorisation and, indeed, resists analysis. ‘Err’ illustrates the moral and artistic conundrums at the heart of contemporary commentary, using drawings full of bleak humour, that confound the brain and unsettle the soul. Originally published in 1995 – this eighth edition has a new cover designed by the artist himself.
