Floodgate Companion is Robert Beatty’s debut monograph, a cosmic and immersive artifact from the renowned album cover artist. Comprised of previously unseen artwork recalling the heyday of paperback sci-fi, experimental animation, and the outsider realm of artist-released jazz and psychedelic records, this book brings the viewer into a world uniquely Beatty’s own, moving stylistically through ink drawings, digital airbrush paintings, and psychedelic op-art collage framed in asemic type to create a cosmic and immersive artifact.
