Eleven years in the making and compiling more than thirty years worth of  material: Ed Templeton’s Deformer, a multi-media scrapbook of his  upbringing in suburban Orange County, California. This beautifully  designed volume, entirely art-directed by Templeton himself, is sure to  be a major work. Its photographs give a sun-drenched glimpse of what it  might be like to be young and alive in what Templeton refers to as “the  suburban domestic incubator”. Deformer intertwines photographs,  paintings, drawings, sketchbook pages, disciplinary letters from his  grandfather and religious notes from his mother into a magnificent  narrative of teenage isolation and social criticism. Many of the  photographs have come about due to his life as a professional  skateboarder. “Skateboarding allowed me to travel the world and that  showed me that where I lived was totally messed up,” says Templeton. “That perspective has fueled me and become a source for my art.” Through  photographs and stories, Ed Templeton’s Deformer offers readers an  intensely close and personal look at not only one artist’s coming of  age, but also the often overlooked and forgotten dark side of the  American dream. Aaron Rose Ed Templeton (1972) started skateboarding in  1985 in his hometown, Huntington Beach, California, and very soon turned  to be a professional skateboarder, which allowed him to tour Europe. As  artist he began by painting the graphics for his skateboard company,  Toy Machine Bloodsucking Skateboard Company in 2000. Deformer is also  the title of a 1996 documentary film about Templeton directed by Mike  Mills. Deformer is also available in a boxed limited edition of 200  hardback copies, with a photograph numbered and signed by Templeton.
