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.
