This monograph features the work of Douglas Bourgeois, a figurative artist whose meticulously detailed paintings and sculptural assemblages present icons of popular culture as well as ordinary people from Louisiana's diverse populations. Bourgeois' work often portrays religious imagery and environmental concerns and the political issues expressed in the rock and roll and movies he loves. He fuses private fantasy with a kind a social document, exploring everything from racial tensions to violence, both domestic and public. The artist, like the figures he depicts, searches for magic or spiritual qualities in everyday life. Ultimately, he and his art seek redemption.
