9780867198089: The World's Best Loved Art Treasures

Click Mort takes mundane ceramic figures and transforms them into new visions. His unique recombinations require extensive cutting, sculpting, sanding, and painting to create pop-culture 'chimeras.' The result is kitsch resurrected in a still vaguely familiar but somewhat less cozy form. Click's recapitated figures have found their way into several of the premiere collections of post-pop art via exhibitions in Pasadena, Los Angeles and Waxahachie, Texas Click's exquisite work has attracted a healthy and ever growing group of collectors who recognize the skill and vision used to create this 'pop-sculpture.' Click's exquisite alterations of antique Rockwell, Hummel, and other miniature gift statuettes require a jeweler's precision. On top of this, he has had a lifetime fascination for oddity, which is as much an asset as his meticulous craftsmanship. Like his contemporary Ron English, Click Mort's unique methodology is a prime example of art that transcends its origins, elevating kitsch and improving the source pieces, which are works of art in themselves. The term surrealism is often recklessly misapplied in the current post-pop contemporary art market, but Click's pieces are truly of the essence that originally defined the movement in the early twentieth century.

About the Author:

Mr. Mort's formal training consists of a single high school ceramics class, where the tendency of his pieces to explode when fired eventually led to him being banned from the kiln. He has since opted to work only with pre-fired materials. Click Mort's unique recombinations of nostalgic pop-sculpture have attracted a healthy and ever growing clientele of in-the-know collectors. A lifetime fascination for oddity is as much an asset as his meticulous craftsmanship, and it's perhaps no surprise to learn that Click served a brief stint playing guitar for The Cramps earlier in his career.

James Gunn is a filmmaker. He wrote the reboot of Dawn of the Dead that ushered in the recent zombie craze, produced the fan-favorite web series PG Porn, and directed the cult genre films Slither and Super. His most recent film as director, Guardians of the Galaxy, was the hit film of summer 2014, delighting audiences worldwide. Gunn has been collecting art for over a decade and is specifically the most voracious collector of Click Mort's art.

Review:

"I hope you enjoy what you see in this book. Please look closely at the photos. If you do, they will make you laugh. If you look closer, they will make you feel. And if you look closer still, they will break your heart." -- James Gunn, Director, Guardians of the Galaxy

"Click Mort creates ‘recapitated figures’ using the parts of different, pre-existing ceramic figurines to create quirky new hybrid statues. Often imbued with narrative humor, the seamless figures also hold a sense of nostalgia as most of the figures source parts from past eras." -- Hi-Fructose Magazine
