EATING WARHOL Painting on canvas.


This art performance is inspired by the narrativeness of the painting. Portraying fictional version of Julia Warhola, Andy Warhol’s mother in a dramatic scene with a hint of humor. Check video in upper right corner.

The painting prompts very subtle connotations and the rhetoric of a ‘first glance’ associations between a mass produced object, an art work and an artist, is reused in a context which borders to art criticism.
We can find a peculiar resemblance to Pop Art which lies in delicately sculpted coolness and high self esteem.
It creates an underground appeal when juxtaposing the woman in a high fashion outfit, inspired by Alexander McQueen’s 2008 collection ‘La Dame Bleue’ with eating soup from a can.
The image is powerful in its narrative. ‘Environment’ could be easily transformed into performance art. Fashionably dressed woman, sitting gracefully in a white and pristine gallery eating red tomato soup directly from a can. Not bothered by the visitors, just eating away.
Slightly vulgar and definitely rebellious.
