Filmmaker, photographer, painter, commercial illustrator, music producer, writer and even fashion model—Andy Warhol was a true radical in his approach to art. The breadth and significance of his influence has made him one of the most important artists of the 20th century. He challenged traditional boundaries of art practice, blurring the lines between art, business, and life.
This exhibition features selections from Warhol’s forty-year span of work in the art of photographic silkscreen printmaking. While many of the works were made in the 1970s and 1980s, their subject matter—iconic people, trends, and issues—reflects his decades-long process of mirroring popular American culture. Warhol transforms photographic imagery, from rather mundane still lifes of fruits to portraits of comic characters and endangered species, through color, design, form, and multiples. Due to the infinite possibilities of printmaking, Warhol’s portfolios contain a vast array of techniques, ranging from collage and drawing to the use of “diamond dust” and color variation.
