This book sheds new light on the creative processes behind the work of Eduardo Paolozzi and Philip Guston. In examining the artists’ processes as play, the volume demonstrates how an artist’s work lies beyond defined art movements. Elly Thomas explores the lasting impact of childhood play, drawing comparisons between the cultural landscapes of Paolozzi’s and Guston’s individual childhoods and the work they create during artistic maturity. This book uses a range of play theories to provide a new perspective on these artists’ work and explores the artists’ recurrent fascination with animism to suggest a direct relationship with their shared engagement with popular culture.
