Tim Presley: Under the Banner of Concern


Featuring Tim Presley artwork from exhibitions at Chicago’s Soccer Club Club and LA’s The Pit, the book Under the Banner of Concern complements its visual power with some of the artist’s poetry. Abstract yet identifiable, Presely’s portraiture relies on his signature “every figure” symbology, marked by sunken eyes and hollowed out, almost stick figure-like, bodies. In some spreads, black and white figures clash or contrast, and sometimes collaborate within a larger scene. Under the Banner of Concern comprises 140 pages and 89 images, including a handful of previously unreleased Presley pieces.
