Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol

A playful balance between Beuys the warm with Warhol the cold. The chalkboard, a tool used by Beuys with cold and inhuman computer printouts, something Warhol would have liked. The wax prints are warmed up (a la Beuys). The poem in the center speaks to inside out, hot and cold.

Whaddya mean it “no longer exists?” That’s crazy! Too bad, so sad.

Oh wow! Really!? That is so cool! Who cares if it took forever…now it just sounds like a lost medium. That is crazy rad!

HA! That’s hilarious! What a fun idea though: printing your resume on sandpaper! I guess there wasn’t any adult supervision around or signs on the machine that said “Please Do Not Use Sandpaper In The Wax Techtronix Machine”

That’s a great piece of work. The Beuys/Warhol connection was a magic thing in art…and you did a nice job here. Beuys was one of those rare artists that can make you cry. Yes, pity it doesn’t exist…
