  Democracy Soup   is an artist’s book by Guy Ben-Ari published by Meta Meta Meta LLC in June 2016. This book presents 51 black and white reproductions from a series of ink drawings on vellum that the artist began in 2015. A preface by Eric Sutphin accompanies the reproductions, as well as a conversation between Ben-Ari and Sutphin about this body of work.    This series of works is based on imagery which originates in the visual world of politics and campaigns, through the lens of news media. Ben-Ari selects images of presidential candidates, hand gestures, televised debate backdrops, U.S. electoral maps, and official White House press material, using them as a starting point for his drawings. Vellum is a surface that inherently resists the act of mark making, repelling the ink in such a way that creates unpredictable textures and patterns. In using this technique, Ben-Ari is able to insert an element of randomness into the process of production. As the ink is applied, the figurative elements often become less legible and increasingly abstract.    Democracy Soup   includes 51 black and white plates, available in softcover or hardcover.     Dimensions: 9” x 6” with 120 pages.      Order a copy  of  Democracy Soup   More info at  www.democracysoup.com
