  • John Baldessari Two Bowlers (with Questioning Person)

    For five decades, John Baldessari has been challenging audiences to reconsider the nature of art with wit, humour and a captivating visual sense. His work amuses, unsettles, questions and makes you look twice and think thrice; laugh out loud; and in general gain a sharpened awareness of the overlapping processes of art-making, art viewing and art thinking. “I go back and forth between wanting to be abundantly simple and maddeningly complex,” he said. 

    Mr. Baldessari’s art is saved from its own rigors by his love of color, born of his beginnings as a painter, and his passion for film. The original  screenprint and lithograph Two Bowlers (with Questioning Person) is an example of his masterful use of color creating a dyamic set of images. Baldessari has often said that he wants his work to make people stop and look, rather than just take it in passively. He accomplishes this in this piece with the compelling and puzzling composition and design. 

    At 87, what's next for the acclaimed "Godfather of Conceptual Art"? Emojis. "I just wondered what they'd look like large," He says. Baldessari finds the animal icons so stupid and fascinating, he has turned them into a vast menagerie, full of cheesy lines from films. 

    Two Bowlers (with Questioning Person) (1994) by John Baldessari is an original lithograph and screenprint. Two Bowlers (with Questioning Person) is an edition of 43.

  • David Hockney Pushing Up

    At 81, David Hockney is still making an impact in the art world. An important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century. Most recently, he created a stained glass window in Westminster Abbey, completely designed on an ipad, celebrating the Queen’s reign. This November, Hockney is poised to dethrone Jeff Koons for the highest auction sale of a work by a living artist. The pool painting is estimated to bring in $80 Million. 

    Running through all the different periods of artwork is Hockney’s principal obsession with the challenge of representation: how do we see the world, and how can that world of time and space be captured in two dimensions? For Hockney, the single-point perspective of photography could not communicate the experience of looking and living in the world. Hockney’s solution to this ‘flaw in photography’ was bound up with his renewed interest in cubism and the work of Picasso.

    The dynamic shapes, colors, and dots in this original lithograph and screenprint, Pushing Up, is a demonstration of Hockney drawing on the language of cubism. For this work, he extends the Cubist visual vocabulary through his use of a rich color palette borrowed from the Pop art movement. His work combines his reverence for art masters of the past and his youthful, joyful attitude. He once said "Art has to move you and design does not, unless it's a good design for a bus."

    Pushing Up (1994) by David Hockney is an original lithograph and screenprint. Pushing Up is hand signed in pencil and is an edition of 68. For more information about David Hockney, or the the original lithograph and screenprint Pushing Up, please contact the gallery. Call For Value.

  • Roy Lichtenstein Landscape with Poet

     

     Landscape with Poet is from one of the famed Pop-Art pioneer's most nuanced, analytical and breathtaking series of productions. The artist Roy Lichtenstein reminds us of his wholly unique ability to engage and form aesthetic conversations with the work of other artists and cultures — reappropriating them within his own lexicon of Benday dots, black contours and monochromatic zones.

    Lichtenstein's best work has always been about other art, though it's usually been Western art. Early on, he made hilarious variations on Picasso's increasingly cubist bull. And later, he turned an abstract expressionist brush stroke into a slew of images. More recently he'd reprised Monet's impressionist renditions of "Rouen Cathedral," using Benday dots and colored paper.

    Captivated by traditional Chinese painting, in particular from the Song Dynasty, he considered how to craft the delicate, ethereal atmosphere so implicit to the "Landscapes in the Chinese Style" series. Lichtenstein became fascinated with the idea that amorphous, monochromatic shapes could actually be representational despite their non-figurative nature. In that respect, the series represents just one more phase in Lichtenstein's illustrious 30-year career. But it is also much more, for it has yielded some of the most lyrical paintings Lichtenstein ever made.

    Landscape with Poet (1996) by Roy Lichtenstein is an original 16-color lithograph and screenprint on Lanaquarelle watercolor paper. Landscape with Poet is an edition of 60 and is signed and numbered in pencil. Landscape with Poet is referenced on page 272 in the Lichtenstein Catalogue Raisonné, Corlett 303. For more information about Roy Lichtenstein or Landscape with Poet, please contact the gallery.

  • Andy Warhol Flash - November 22,1963

    Andy Warhol depicted the media’s portrayal of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in a series of screen prints titled Flash- November 22nd, 1963. A granular image of the events that unfolded on that fateful day has become engrained in the collective consciousness of the American people. The omnipresent power of that image, not surprisingly, fascinated Pop Art visionary Andy Warhol, whose work obsessively explored the intersection of tragedy and fame.

    The title for the series derives from the phrase “news flash”. The screenprints are based on campaign posters, mass media photos, and advertisements. The cover of the portfolio reproduces the front page of the New York World Telegram on that day. This screenprint features the image of Jacqueline Kennedy smiling just moments before her husband was shot.

    In this series, Warhol emphasizes how public opinion is more so shaped by mass media than individual understanding. Warhol said "when President Kennedy was shot that fall, I heard the news over the radio while I was alone painting in my studio. I don’t think I missed a stroke. I wanted to know what was going on out there, but that was the extent of my reaction. I’d been thrilled about having Kennedy as president; he was handsome, young, smart—but it didn’t bother me that much that he was dead. What bothered me was the way television and radio were programming everybody to feel so sad. It seemed like no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t get away from the thing.”

    Flash - November 22, 1963 (1968) by Andy Warhol is an original screenprint and is referenced in Feldman II.34. Flash - November 22, 1963 is an unsigned publisher’s proof. For more information about Andy Warhol or Flash - November 22, 1963  please contact the gallery. Call For Value.
