Presented framed, a striking silkscreen on paper by contemporary artist Billy Schenck, entitled "Jornada Del Muerto #2".
Fusing Navajo culture, Spaghetti Westerns and tongue-in-cheek humour, Billy Schenck also known as the "Warhol of the West" takes viewers on an exhilarating trek through Western mythology. With accomplished use of chiaroscuro, Billy projects photographs from Western movie stills and fills the outlines with flat, hard-edged areas of colour.
This, in his own words, produces "a perfect marriage of photorealism and a paint-by-number system".
This piece is inspired by a movie still from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which was shot in 1966.
