A recent edition of the weekly Wentworth Courier finds (below) a timely salute to Pop Art (PA), the subject of a current exhibition at the AG NSW.
For reference we also see Richard Hamilton’s famous 1956 collage which seeded the movement.
PA as we know was born in the UK in the mid 1950s then soared in the US in the 1960s (and keeps soaring, check the art sales in New York the other week for Andy Warhol et al), a broad church but satirising for some indulgent contemporary Consumerism, and Celebrity Commodification.
