Collection: Liquid Capitalism
When Andy Warhol painted his Campbell soup cans onto 32 canvases in 1961, many Europeans thought his pop art, based on product packaging, was a critique of US capitalism. It wasn't; he was painting his lunch. - Processed soup and Coca-Cola. He loved money, so he painted dollar bills; he admired film stars, so he painted Monroe and Taylor. Subverting ubiquitous capitalism in modern life; now that's my job :-).
This collection exploits the iconography of Andy Warhol's lunch. Firstly, the original version: 'Capitalism, concentrated', which satirises the impact of this all-pervasive, annihilating force. Secondly, 'Surveillance Capitalism', which is the recent unprecedented invasion of our private lives by Silicon Valley surveillance capitalists, and the conversion of our behavioural data into immense power and economic dominance with the promise of frictionless access to the fruits of the third modernity. Finally, 'Climate-friendly' soup, which is a concoction designed to be gentler to the planet and all of its inhabitants.
This collection is currently being exhibited at a London gallery; if you would like to see examples, please see my socials and contact me via Instaglam or through my contact form (below)
