“Vitamin P” is an image-heavy book offering an overview of the state of painting today, and documents the most recent concerns and ideas among contemporary painters. Often moving beyond the traditional image associated with this medium, this survey illustrates the richness, eclecticism, dynamism and contemporaneity of painting. In the wake of new media such as installation, video, performance and digital art, the traditional medium of painting has enjoyed a renaissance among a recent generation of artists. Barry Schwabsky's introductory text offers a critical survey of the evolution of painting since the late 1950's.
