Synopsis: This new publication about the artistic collaboration Faile documents its work with the medium of wood. Together, Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller are Faile. Although their art has its roots on the street, their work clearly demonstrates that street art no longer solely belongs there. What began on city walls and asphalt is now shown, with much success, in galleries and museums and can be found in living rooms and on everyday objects. In their numerous projects, activities, exhibitions, and images, Faile show how much fun art can be and how much fun they have making it. Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller have been working with wood since they founded Faile in 1999. Now, Faile: Works on Wood showcases their exploration of wood as an integral material in their practice from past to present. The book follows Gestalten's two bestsellers Faile: Prints + Originals 1999-2009 and Faile Temple. Faile: Works on Wood present a compelling spectrum of projects and craftsmanship that plays with the diversity of wood in terms of its uses and look and feel--from early street art using salvaged material to more recent projects using apple boxes as well as their towering installation at the New York City Ballet. The book introduces their Faile Puzzle Boxes, each of which contains 88 wooden blocks painted on six sides that can be moved and turned to create countless visual possibilities. It also includes their sculptural, carved Prayer Wheels, which are engineered to spin in place while people meditate to their favorite Faile images. Featuring beautiful color reproductions and several new essays on their practice, Faile: Works on Wood takes readers on a journey of discovery through the artists' work with this medium. In the process, the book shows that street art is not a momentary trend, but rather an independent art form.

Product Description: Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller have worked in a wide range of materials and styles since the inception of FAILE in 1999. They are best known for their prints, paintings, and mixed-media installations, which have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. Inspired by American folk art and the visual tapestry of city walls, their work is characterized by a vibrant weaving of abstraction, mass culture, and commercial typography.

FAILE: Works on Wood is a new collection of essays and rich color photographs that showcases FAILE s exploration of wood in their practice. It presents a broad swath of their projects from the past decade, from early work using salvaged material to more recent commissions, such as their towering installation at the New York City Ballet. The book features both critical writing and reflections by the artists on now iconic facets of their work in and out of the studio, including their interactive Puzzle Boxes, carved Prayer Wheels, and bold, large-scale painting.

Following Gestalten s two bestsellers FAILE: Prints + Originals 1999 2009 and FAILE Temple, FAILE: Works on Wood features beautiful color reproductions and guides readers through the artists work with a versatile medium. In the process, the book shows that FAILE has evolved and adapted in dialogue with their materials, and will do so for years to come.
