Andy Warhol

Shadows and Other Signs of Life

by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh

Hardback Publication Date: 07/02/2008

 
On the occasion of what would have been Andy Warhol's eightieth birthday, in 2008, this exquisitely produced volume examines one essential but miraculously under-studied element of the artist's work: The shadow. Beginning with photographic still lifes of skulls and taxidermied animals, then moving on to male nudes, tabletops and table settings, celebrity portraits, gems, fruits and many amazing still lifes of hammers, sickles, shoes and other ordinary objects that presage Fischli & Weiss' "Equilibres" by several years, "Shadows and Other Signs of Life" concludes with Warhol's photographs of actual shadows and an outstanding selection of abstract silkscreens, stenciled works and piss paintings. Published to accompany the eponymous exhibition at Paris' Galerie Chantal Crousel, this volume contains illuminating short texts--"Anniversary Notes for Andy Warhol"--by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh.
