Mad Deep Thoughts by Riley Payne is the inaugural book from Perimeter Editions. It incorporates the weird yet wonderful with the formal and classic. Payne likes to think of them as collages; drawings and Google image searches. Using foliage, fruit and the human figure, the works range from smoking carrots, to neon signs, and include snippets of text here and there. Being a stickler for detail, it’s obvious that Payne has meticulously crafted the works with great technical skill and an offbeat sense of humour. You better be quick though, only 700 copies have printed.
