description

"Artist's book by David Shrigley, an artist based in Glasgow, who has achieved international recognition; the success of this book has increased as his work has reached an ever-wider audience. Shrigley's work has been described as having the ability to make one laugh and cry at the same time. Working across different media - drawing, sculpture, photography and painting - Shrigley's output defies categorisation and, indeed, resists analysis. 'Err' illustrates the moral and artistic conundrums at the heart of contemporary commentary, using drawings full of bleak humour, that confound the brain and unsettle the soul." -- publisher's statement.
