n°39 - Richard Prince

American artist Richard Prince (born 1949) lives
and works in Upstate New York. In the ‘70s,
he explored the potential of advertising imagery
and started rephotographing found photos and
advertisments, presenting them unaltered and
without comments as a form of societal critique.
Prince left no piece of America unturned: movies,
advertisements, cartoons and popular jokes were
all grist for his irony mill. Beginning in the late
‘80s, Prince continued his photographic works
and began to make paintings. One of his « Nurse
paintings » was featured on the cover of Sonic
Youth’s Sonic Nurse. Prince is now recognized as
one of the leading artists of our time, with major
exhibitions in preparation for 2007 at the Astrup
Fearnley Museum for Modern Art in Oslo and at
the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
“ I lived in NYC for twenty-five years.
When I was there I took photographs of what was
inside magazines. When I moved «upstate» I took
photographs of what was outside of magazines.
I like to get in my truck and take a camera along
and drive and get lost and run into things that
I once saw inside magazines.”
– Richard Prince
