Out Now: Evidence for Contact
“This book, like the art practice it documents, is a testament to possibilities, but it is also a reassurance: even if, despite the overwhelming odds, the aliens do not exist among the star fields of the cosmos, they have found a home in the works of Ken Grimes.” – Seth Shostak (Senior Astronomer, SETI)
The paintings of Ken Grimes are strikingly honest, deceptively simple, and decidedly interstellar. Over several decades, Grimes has developed his singular style–using text, numbers, outer space iconography, and geometric shapes painted primarily in stark black and white–to prompt his audience to consider the possibilities and implications of alien contact with earth. We’re excited to unveil Evidence for Contact, a catalog of the endless variations on a theme produced by an absolutely unique painter during a lifetime devoted to the mysteries of extraterrestrial life.
