DESCRIPTION

This exhibition of drawings brings together three self-taught artists - Eddie Arning (1898- 1993), Freddie Brice (1920-1998), and R.A. "Ray" Hamilton (1919-1996) - whose work shares clear affinities with Pop art. None were ever a part of the mainstream art world, nevertheless, their methodologies were startlingly postmodernist. Each utilized formal strategies that included the appropriation, abstraction, and juxtaposition of readymade image; each took as their subject matter common objects or magazine advertisements.
