Andy Warhol “Black & White” at Prism Los Angeles

Prism Gallery Los Angeles continues with an impressive line-up of shows. End of last week the “Black & White” exhibition of Andy Warhol art opened.

“Prism is pleased to present a selection of late paintings by Andy Warhol. In the mid-1980s, Warhol made a series of silkscreened black and white works with imagery taken from a cross-section of sources. The paintings are stark representations of advertisements, diagrams, maps, and illustrations in newspapers and magazines pulled from his scrapbook of ads from the 1950s. Warhol’s themes of consumer culture, death and religion are dramatically represented in these late works. The ghostly messages seem to fade and dissolve the text into near abstractions. Some 25 years later the immediacy and familiarity of the images still resonate within today’s advertisement and image driven culture.”
