containing multitudes since 2004
interesting to consider how reviled he was, at the time. 'painting soup cans? i can just buy one off the shelf for 30 cents!' parodied in teen movies and mocked in vegas comic's routines--people just didn't get it. reading "popism", when it first came out in 1980, one thing i got off the top was that the world looks radically different from nyc than it does across the hudson. just as nyc does from london. ...and probaby london from paris...but the beauty of the work, as a whole, is that it captured time on a bunch of canvases. if they were lps, you could drop the needle in the groove and just listen to the scratches.
