    About The Work

    As a poet, novelist, and painter, Childish has explored throughout his work, and often with a startling honesty, his struggles in coming to terms with addiction, abuse, and a childhood spent in a dysfunctional family setting. Inspired by Edvard Munch, Vincent van Gogh, and Kurt Schwitters, Childish’s visual work stands alongside his music, literary and polemical projects. This etching, Toni Kurz Decending, is from a group of paintings and prints that depict volcanoes and mountain-climbing scenes, all influenced by the last climb of German mountaineer Toni Kurz. Persistently aligning his own identity with singularly historical subjects, Childish’s compositions might be read as an expanded form of self-portraiture.
