Richard Artschwager - Editions & Works on Paper New York Tuesday, October 24, 2023 | Phillips
  •  “My most important quality or property is curiosity. And that had its beginning in what I was going to do with my life.”
    Richard Artschwager

    Artschwager's multiples offer visual and analytical contradictions, subversively engaging simultaneously with the vernaculars of Pop, Minimalism, and Conceptualism: the Pop derivation from utilitarian objects, the Minimal application of industrial materials, and the Conceptual impulse to engage with the ideological structures of language. Twisting established dichotomies of artistic and industrial production, Artschwager blurs the line between what is faux versus real, handmade versus manufactured, functional versus useless, and ordinary object versus high art.
