In Sophie Goldstein’s new book The Oven (AdHouse Books), she talks about a hopeful and dystopian future. Ozone depletion and dwindling resources have driven the human race into domed cities where population controls are strictly enforced. When a young couple goes looking for an anti-government paradise in the desert they may have found more than they bargained for.
“Sophie Goldstein’s artwork looks very simple, but it’s the kind of simplicity that’s complexity boiled down to a potent concentrate.” –Douglas Wolk, NYTimes.com
