The Canadian art group the Royal Art Lodge, currently made up
of Marcel Dzama, Neil Farber, and Michael Dumontier, used Farber’s
dining room table to create the 160 tiny (7.6cm x 8.9 cm) paintings
on wood featured in this book. The deliberately crude, almost comicbook-
like pictures, typical of this groundbreaking collective, include
vague and puzzling epigrams, exploring the dreamy and melancholic
thoughts we have about women and children-the fears, the sadness,
and the desire to protect both.
