Channeling the bright colors and ironic undertones of such Pop artists as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, the paintings and serigraphs of Billy Schenck incorporate film stills, pulp novel covers, and other media in order to simultaneously celebrate and critique iconic western imagery. Drawn from the artist’s personal collection, this retrospective examines Schenck’s ongoing artistic interaction with the American West.
