"ENERGISM the first concept to group contemporary artworks on the basis of a shared ATTITUDE, is the inspiration for this publication. All of the artists and writers represented inside were asked to think about ENERGISM in doing their own thing. 'THE FIRST ENERGIST BOOK' is the exciting result. The contents articulate the special qualities of ENERGISM, from the frank celebration of individual expression to the active, aggressive, outer-directed ATTITUDE or pictorial energy, fast-time structures and images. Its pages offer the viewer/reader the pleasure of bold, immediate and intensely specific experiences of visual information." --Ronny Cohen.
