Robert Williams continues his legacy of lowbrow/garage surrealism with "Through Prehensile Eyes". It collects all of his newest canvases painted since the publication of "Malicious Respendence". The paintings are all of the same style and twisted sense of humor we have come to expect from Williams. This book is a walkthrough of 58 paintings by Robert Williams with each plate receiving a suitable diatribe from the artistic genius himself. I read through and studied each painting in one sitting and could not put this book down, although the subject matter and depth of each painting is probably best taken over a longer period of time.

Introduction by Meg Linton

Introduction by Meg Linton. San Francisco: Last Gasp of San Francisco, 2005. Through Prehensile Eyes" is a collection of Robert Williams' fifty-eight then-recent paintings first exhibited at New York's Tony Shafrazi Gallery and subsequently shown in May 2005 at the Ben Maltz Gallery at Los Angeles' Otis College of Art. The images range from the artist's familiar lowbrow and biker culture, stretching deep into a faux science of quantum mechanics leaving the viewer in a world of scientific mindplay. Robert Williams sprang from the custom car culture of Southern California and was one of the original Zap Comix artists.

Through Prehensile Eyes book. From biker culture to the faux science of quantum mechanics, this. It could be said, then, that with Through Prehensile Eyes Williams seems to have matured further, and maybe even mellowed out. The nudes seem toned down, replaced with an emphasis on puns and Escher-like optical illusions. Many of these more recent paintings also jettison the hyper-busy aesthetic of VA and VFATL. So even though Through Prehensile Eyes sees a more mellow Williams, does he still have it? I say yes. I found most of these paintings deeply appealing.
