David Lynch

Someone is in My House

Prestel Publishing

 

With a myriad of projects spanning across a plethora of disciplines and media, David Lynch has established himself to be a bit of a renaissance man, who idiosyncratic approach to art pervades every emission no matter if it is film, music or paintings.

“Someone is in my house” sheds light on Lynch’s multimedia endeavours, the common denominator of which is his visionary imagination and his own language that is translated via visuals – be it paintings, still photos from his movies along with other photography, doodles and works on paper, sculptures, proper paintings, sound installations and pretty much everything in between.

Heavily tinged with surrealism, what is covered in this book is an extension of what most have come to love with his often macabre and dark cinematic works. What makes this book interesting is that humorous nuances emerge in places where one would least expect it

Framed by a thought provoking introduction by music journalist and Lynch biographer Kristine McKenna, the book bridges over to Lynch’s current exhibition at the Bonnefantenmuseum, the curator of which elaborates further and Lynch’s significance at large as well as the rationale behind the exhibition.

“Someone is in my house” is an ode in book form to a man, who has never ceased to grow and evolve and whose multifaceted and versatile approach to art keeps engaging, enlightening and surprising his fans as well as new audiences. It is an oeuvre that fits both the aficionado as well as those who for whatever reasons have not come across Twin Peaks or Eraserhead yet.
