Art comes in many forms... As an undertaker, the human body is Harold's canvas. For Rutger and Kandy, famous porn stars from the 80s, flesh is also their preferred medium of art. When Harold's ex-lovers start arriving in body bags, the undertaker believes he's receiving a message to create a new masterpiece. Rutger and Kandi are also on a mission. Their new task will be to film the most shocking porno imaginable. Toby and Jessica are just recent high school graduates looking for some fun, but their cabin vacation has landed them in the wrong place at the wrong time. All the while, a mysterious red dust surrounds these unique individuals, drawing their worlds together in bizarre and horrifying ways. Yes, art is dangerous, and Body Art is the most deadly of all...

"I never knew something so twisted could turn me on so much!"- Tim Morse of Anal Cunt "Whatever style or mode Triana is writing in, the voice matches it unfailingly... it's a safe bet we'll be seeing his name a lot in the years to come." - Cemetery Dance "Sick and slick-the kind of horror that nests in your belly, making you feel somehow nauseated but complete." - Jessica McHugh, author of The Train Derails in Boston "Kristopher Triana's prose is excellent, his plots compelling. Check out a rising star." - Gene O'Neill, author of The Cal Wild Chronicles "Triana is a builder. He works in rural American grit, spit and the grime scraped from the windows of the soul. He uses that to build horrific and haunted adobe houses for us to cower in. He writes upon the walls and whispers in our ears, sometimes screaming when we seem too calm." - John Boden, author of Jedi Summer

The first book to celebrate the beautiful and provocative ways artists have represented, scrutinized and utilized the body over centuries. Body of Art is the first book to explore the various ways the human body has been both an inspiration and a medium for artists over hundreds of thousands of years. Unprecedented in its scope, it examines the many different manifestations of the body in art, from Anthony Gormley and Maya Lin sculptures to eight-armed Hindu gods and ancient Greek reliefs, from feminist graphics and Warhol's empty electric chair to the blue-tinted complexion of Singer Sargent's Madame X. It is the most expansive examination of the human body in art, spanning western and non-western, ancient to contemporary, representative to abstract and conceptual. Over 400 artists are featured in chapters that explore identity, beauty, religion, absent body, sex and gender, power, body's limits, abject body and bodies & space. Works range from 11,000 BC hand stencils in Argentine caves to videos and performances by contemporary artists such as Marina Abramovic, Joan Jonas and Bruce Nauman? Its fresh, accessible and dynamic voice brings to life the thrilling diversity of both classical and contemporary art through the prism of the body. More than simply a book of representations, this is an original and thought provoking look at the human body across time, cultures and media.
