THE MERLIN YEARS
THE ART OF TEAM MACHO II

As the second monograph from iconic art collective Team Macho, The Merlin Years celebrates one of Canada’s most unique emerging art groups. This richly illustrated book surveys work between 2007 and 2012 from shows in Toronto, Montreal, Amsterdam, Los Angeles and New York.

Ranging from the crudely rendered to the classically painted, Team Macho playfully juxtapose styles and motifs, creating mixed media works that encompass a replete list of materials and methods. Team Macho’s work conveys a strong DIY ethic and a decidedly informal, multidisciplinary approach. With an idiosyncratic attitude toward collaboration, the group synchronously cultivate a cooperative yet highly competitive spirit, where the very nature of their alliance revolves around celebrating, thwarting and subverting each other’s contributions, creating seamless collaborations from the fraternal narrative that surrounds their studio practice. Including essays and candid interviews on their group practice, artistic brotherhood and their 2012 Axis Mundi project at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Writing by Maggie MacDonald, Ann Marie Peña and A. James Bradley.
9 x12 in. Softcover. Fullcolour.

FANCY ACTION NOW
THE ART OF TEAM MACHO

In their first two exhibitions at Magic Pony, Friends 4 Life (June 2005) and Team Macho is a Tough Man (May 2006), Team Macho established the key elements of their artistic process- camaraderie, geeky bravado and the creation of a personal culture laden with absurdity, inside jokes and well-meaning antagonism toward one another. Fancy Action Now showcases their most cohesive and dynamic work to date, as Team Macho explores some new pursuits with reckless enthusiasm: sabotage, fluorescence, racquetry, and most importantly, fanciness. With a cavalcade of new characters- Whiskey Boot, nude sportsmen, wistful lads and melancholy ladies; rainbow-coloured Fancy Action Now unleashes Team Macho’s true pansy awesomeness.

Introduction by Paul Dallas and interview with Gary Taxali.
