Urs Fischer’s work explores the genres of classical art history (still lifes, portraits, nudes, landscapes, and interiors) at the intersection with everyday life—in cast sculptures and assemblages, paintings, digital montages, spatial installations, mutating or kinetic objects, and texts. This volume includes fifty-five color illustrations from Urs Fischer’s Beds and Problem Paintings show that was exhibited at Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles from February 23–April 7, 2012. This was the artist’s first major solo exhibition with the gallery. Beds and Problem Paintings was designed by the artist, and the images within the book include installation photos from the exhibition as well as photographs taken by the artist.
