Artist, writer, and curator John Seed believes we are “the most distracted society in the history of the world.” That’s one reason he created “Disrupted Realism: Paintings for a Distracted World” (Schiffer Publishing), the first book to survey 38 living artists who distort traditional realism to reflect the fragmentation of modern life.

During interviews with these talents, Seed learned that all of them share the need to include perception and emotion in their process.

The book contains 190 images, runs 208 pages, and has six thematic sections:
– Toward Abstraction
– Disrupted Bodies
– Emotions and Identities
– Myths and Visions
– Patterns, Planes, and Formations
– Between Painting and Photography.
