David Lynch is internationally renowned for his films and music, but he began his creative life as a visual artist and has maintained a devoted studio practice, developing an extensive body of painting, prints, photography, and drawing. The first major U.S. museum exhibition of his work, David Lynch: The Unified Field, opened at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) this weekend. The show is creating buzz in the New York Times, SlateArt in AmericaPhilly.com, and elsewhere.

Featuring work from all periods of Lynch’s career, David Lynch: The Unified Field, forthcoming from UC Press, documents the exhibition, which brings together works held in American and European collections and from the artist’s studio, many of which have rarely been seen in public.
