First of all, a big shout-out to the readers for helping me solve my last Name That Trauma about artist Laurie Lipton that I posted back in October.
My next query is also art-related. When I was around 9 years old (circa 1981), my family and I visited my ‘hipster’ uncle’s house. He was always very avant-garde and into all sorts of art, music, and film. During our visit there, I came across a coffee-table book he had that was about a group of humanoid characters that were like colors personified. There was a yellow man, a red man, but the one that stuck out in my mind was an indigo man, mainly because I had never heard that word before. I don’t remember much about the theme or the story of the book, but the paintings/drawings had such a surreal quality that they stick in my mind to this day.
I’d love to find out what the book was and the name of the artist, anybody? Bueller? Beuller?
