New Title: Pop Imagery @ Waddington Custot
Oct 23, 2013
Shifting the focus away from Warhol, this beautifully designed exhibition catalogue presents an eclectic selection of artists affiliated with the Pop Art movement, from pioneers such as Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns to lesser known British artists working on the margins, including Patrick Caulfield, Peter Blake and Bill Woodrow. The accompanying essay by Marco Livingstone considers the pop aesthetic across a variety of media, juxtaposing the vibrant sculptures of Claes Oldenburg with the brightly coloured paintings of Rosalyn Drexler. He unites all 14 artists through the recognition of a certain game-playing spirit and thirst for entertainment in their work.
