About the Author

FRED TOMASELLI is an artist best known for his highly-detailed works combining abstract patterns, human figures, and natural forms in a range of unorthodox materials--such as medicinal herbs, prescription drugs, hallucinogenic plants, and cuttings from printed material. His meticulous compositions swirl across the picture plane like psychedelic visions or Medieval tapestry patterns. Tomaselli sees his works as surreal and hallucinatory universes, in which viewers are apt to lose themselves to a vortex of imagery and ornament. He is particularly interested in the notion of utopia and its various iterations in creative movements, from the Transcendentalists to the Beatniks, describing his work as a sort of "search for transcendence."
Peter Carlaftes is author of five books including the poetry collections Drunkyard Dog and I Fold With the Hand I Was Dealt and two collections of plays: Teatrophy and Triumph for Rent. He is co-editor of the annual contemporary dada journal, Maintenant and editor of The Faking Of The President: Nineteen Stories of White House Noir. His poetry has appeared in NYC from the Inside, Love Love Magazine, Chorus: A Literary Mixtape and many more. He is co-director of Three Rooms Press.

"A compilation of leading Dada-influenced artists from around the world." --TRIBE LA Magazine
"Excellent examples of collage and montage techniques . . . Interesting visual poems." --Portland Book Review
"Contemporary art and writing ranging from collages and acrylics to new digital art motifs and using computers to create art . . . As always it brings an interesting perspective." --Manhattan Book Review
"Though people expect Dada to be silly, and sometimes it is here, it is also often political and usually poignant. . . It's quite a smorgasbord for those who are sick and tired of it." --Seattle Book Review
