Comments David Lynch: The Unified Field

  • Scoats

    This book is a souvenir from a Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts exhibit of the same name. Lynch spent several formative years at PAFA before settling in LA. I attended the exhibit and ironically enough the program from it is actually right here on my desk. Not knowing what else do to with it, but wanting to keep it, it sat here for a months. Now I can put inside the book. A small victory in the fight against clutter.A present from a friend (thanks Larry Berthold), I had just finished a book [...]

    Although I didn't find the art work done by Lynch in this book particularly intriguing, I do admire his films and was interested in this information about his life. It's clear from the films he's made that Lynch is not just trying to make money, but has a unique vision and is an original artist. The images here support that conclusion.


  • Joshua

    Lynch as a painter is often ignored, or else casually thrown into much of the analysis of his film as a means of understanding his aesthetic which is unfortunate because this book should perform the opposite task and remind Lynch fans that the man began and remains a painter more than anything else. Each painting in this book informs, and further demonstrates Lynch's careful attention to images. Every painting is an impression and, in its own way, and opening into a completely different reality [...]

    Interesting, cool work. Lynch's artwork doesn't get enough attention. As the title suggests, there's plenty here that expands on and bridges his film work.I'm particularly fond of the house paintings. Very cool attention to shading and color, with nice contrasts in smooth, soft textures and harsh, crude lines that create some disconcerting harmonies, as well as severe incongruities. The childlike combined with a dreamlike mystery and adult reflection on fear and life's dangers makes for a fully [...]


  • Kirk Johnson

    This book provides a fairly extensive overview of Lynch's artworks, from his time as a student to just a few years ago. You can see some influences for the latest season of Twin Peaks, but the entire body of work is wonderful to behold. The essay at the beginning of the book is also of note.


  • David

    On how he became a filmmaker: "I'm looking at the painting and from the painting came a windAnd the green garden plants began to moveAnd I'm looking at this and hearing this and I say, 'Oh, a moving painting.' And that was it."


  • Ryan Lowrie

    an incredible overview of a brilliant artist's career


  • Kate

    Read Lynch's 'catching the Big Fish', got curious and searched up a biography. I like his ideas about meditation as a source of creativity.


  • John

    David Lynch the Artist from the beginning


  • Richard Downey

    Interesting book on Lynch's art work.
