46-page catalogue for an exhibition held March 6-April 5, 2008, with an essay by William Corbett and illustrated with 20 full-page color plates. Lees qualifies as a Californian since he lived his formative years there, when he fell in love with movies. His work is intensely textured-layered and overpainted-an element that doesn't quite come through on the page's flat plane. The coloration is there, however. Fine in stiff wraps as issued.
