In the Realm of Appearances: The Art of Andy Warhol

Overview

By the time he died in 1987, Andy Warhol's notoriety extended far beyond the rarified confines of the New York art world, beyond the fifteen minutes of fame he predicted for everyone's future, and into the vast realm of pop-culture. Warhol's public image was no less fascinating or controversial than his portraits of Campbell's soup cans, Brillo boxes, and movie stars. And the powerful mythology that surrounds both the man and his art continues to excite curiosity and demand attention. Some critics have called ...

Overview

By the time he died in 1987, Andy Warhol's notoriety extended far beyond the rarified confines of the New York art world, beyond the fifteen minutes of fame he predicted for everyone's future, and into the vast realm of pop-culture. Warhol's public image was no less fascinating or controversial than his portraits of Campbell's soup cans, Brillo boxes, and movie stars. And the powerful mythology that surrounds both the man and his art continues to excite curiosity and demand attention. Some critics have called Warhol an authentic visionary while others have branded him a charlatan. In this unique series of prose meditations, poet and art critic John Yau examines the artist's identity in the inseparable context of his work, bringing fresh insight both to "the surface" and what may in fact be "behind it". Yau balances the polarized opinions about Warhol by considering the general state of affairs in twentieth century visual art and placing him in the context of such artistic influences and compatriots as Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons and composer John Cage. He also explores Warhol's creative energy in terms of cultural stereotypes and psychological factors such as voyeurism, vindictiveness, fear of intimacy and need for acceptance. What emerges from these meditations is a clear-eyed portrait of the myriad forces, both internal and external, that shaped the most highly acclaimed postwar artist in America. Yau pinpoints and dissects the central irony of Andy Warhol's life and work: that "The artist who helped demystify art has, it seems, become an impenetrable mystery"
