This book presents the work of London-based artist Merlin Carpenter. With essays by critic Caroline Busta and art historian George Baker, the book represents the final part of a series of exhibitions entitled, The Opening. These exhibitions were marked by the fact that all the paintings presented were produced at the galleries during the exhibition openings. Hundreds of photos of these opening events offer a fascinating view of the art world from 2007 to 2009. The paintings by the artist are also reproduced, as are numerous gallery invitations announcing Carpenter’s referential, at times irreverent, politically-charged painting actions.
