Pettibon’s iconic works of surfers and waves capture the sentiment to either surf or paint. His enigmatic aesthetic and satirical critiques of American culture are pervasive. Depicting a lone surfer carving a “line of beauty” along an impossibly large wave, this quintessential volume features over one hundred works from paper to wall. We’re forced to confront our smallness and feebleness against nature’s power. Pettibon’s writings – his own and lines taken from literature – capture his philosophies and the confusions of reality.

Scholar Brian Lukacher explores art-historical antecedents and Jamie Brisick examines the Southern California culture, while Emi Erickson and Stephanie Gilmore comment on conquering enormous waves.
