DESCRIPTION

For our summer show, David Nolan Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Richard Pettibone. On view from July 9 through August 9, this presentation brings together 5 sculptures and nearly 40 paintings from the 1960s and spanning the artist’s career.

A key proponent of the West Coast “Conceptual Pop” movement, Pettibone appropriated imagery from Warhol, Lichtenstein and Brancusi – among others. The rear gallery will be devoted to copies of the artist’s abiding inspiration, Marcel Duchamp.

Typically framed and constructed upon miniature stretcher bars, his small-scale “replicas” subvert the traditional notion of artists as creators of original works of art while maintaining a critical distance from the artworks that they reproduce. As the catalogue for Pettibone’s last major retrospective (2005-6) suggests: “his appropriations do more than merely commemorate their sources. Although comic and good-humored, they probe and tweak those sources.” The present exhibition offers a rare to opportunity to assess the work of this important American artist.
