Product Description

“The reputation of Erik Thys (b. 1961) rests on his work as a psychiatrist, not as an artist. Thys lives in Brussels where he composes music, draws, and practices in two psychiatric hospitals. On the occasion of this book, Thys invited a colleague, the British psychoanalyst Darian Leader, to reflect on his infatuation with automobiles. The drawings in this book are a small, almost pitiful, portion of the number Erik Thys provided. They came to us on all types of office paper, prescription pads, and whatever else was at hand.”
