This catalogue takes the work of two contemporary American artists, Christopher Wool and Sharon Lockhart, and looks back at the work of their predecessors as painters and filmmakers from earlier generations. The key figure of these reflections is Andy Warhol, who both revolutionized painting as a medium and made a major contribution to the development of film. His work spans both Barnett Newman's access to the materiality of pictures and the artistic exploitation of media images and their apparent reality with which Bruce Conner achieved such brilliant effects.
