In addition to their recently published books, Daria Tessler & Dylan Jones are making a collaborative art zine out of a vast assortment of bits and pieces.
Dylan also will have a new zine called I Can’t Guess made for the show, in addition to his new book The Longer You Stare the Fatter I’m Guilty, published last month by Gridlords. Dylan Jones has led a shoe mouth face floppy dagger dinger across an array of pages with his dextrous limbs’ pinwheel pineal dialogue. His new book will no doubt leave a zipper-length void in midmouth just as you grew wanting.
Daria Tessler’s most recent book, Three Magical Recipes from the Book of Secrets of Albertus Magnus, was published by Perfectly Acceptable Press. Dig out your parents’ glassen vessel and catch thyself a rearmouse – Daria Tessler illuminates three recipes from Alchemist-in-Chief Albertus Magnus’s Book of Secrets… One spell-binding four-color Risograph booklet.

Dylan Jones is an artist originally hailing from New Hampshire. Jones probably draws for more hours, makes more art and animates more objects than anyone alive or dead. It’s hard to imagine Jones sleeping ever, and his work makes one believe that he likely only loosely does something resembling sleeping, with eyes agape at all times. A meditative existence, so to speak. His work is methodical, pulling at all of the items in view, all of our mundane surroundings, and showing us how people can inhabit these the way Jones will inhabit your psyche. Jones’s work is the field of fantasies for persons who have seen too much, and it is the nightmares of the blissfully ignorant.
Born in Finland, Daria Tessler has been popping out of a jack-in-the-box at the cranking of dawn’s sunburned hand to the music of unknown worlds. A master silkscreener and master artist, Tessler has pulled as many visions she has screens. Her expert use of color will make you believe you are seeing hues that your eyes couldn’t previously register. Her linework and patterning is the most pleasant waft of wispy air, filled with pollen and pines, brushing over you. Each inhabitant of Tessler’s work wears on them a blissful quality of anxiety, a state of mind. You are doing yourself the greatest favor by stepping out of your body and into her body of work. Her book Music of Changes will be out soon from Latvian publisher kus! as part of their mini kus! line.
