ARTWORK CURRENTLY ON VIEW AT HEATHER JAMES JACKSON HOLE

Larry Rivers is considered by many to be the father of the Pop Art movement.  In Rivers's 1980 work "Beyond Camel," we see a slightly out of focus Camel Cigarette pack, an item from consumer culture Rivers has appropriated to create a critique of commoditization and consumer culture. Rivers would have certainly been aware of the work of Stuart Davis and his 1921 painting, "Lucky Strike," depicting a flattened pack of cigarettes. Rivers interprets his subject with a Pop Art perspective; however, the imagery is almost larger than life, and the brand image is presented as a subject unto itself.  
<br>
<br>In 2002, a retrospective of Rivers's work was held at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Julian Schnabel is an American painter whose style is associated with the Neo-Expressionist movement of the 1980s. Pascin Pig Passin Time is part of Schnabel’s broken plate series of paintings, inspired by the trencadís, or broken tile mosaic, of architect Antoni Gaudí. With a humorous title and depicting his first wife, Jacqueline Beaurang, the broken ceramics give Schnabel an assertive and textural surface in which to create large-scale works that captured the brash and audacious period of the 1980s.

As a member of the legendary Gutai Art Association that flourished between 1954 and 1972, Sadamasa Motonaga emerged when post-atomic surrealist existentialism was at the forefront of artistic development in Japan. Yet he chose a different path. He turned his back on the destruction wrought by the war and created work that was fresh, jubilant, and playful. “Untitled” of 1966 is in his classic style, which developed concurrently with Morris Louis’ so-called ‘Veil’ paintings. It might suggest the brightly lit comb, eye and mottled plumage of a gallinaceous bird, but any such associations are probably arbitrary and unintended. Instead, it is a brilliantly successful display of Motonaga’s avant-garde take on traditional Japanese Tarashikomi — the technique that involves tilting the canvas at different angles to allow mixtures of resin and enamel to flow upon one another before the paint is fully dry.

SADAMASA MOTONAGA

Pre-eminent surrealist Frida Kahlo created paintings and drawings that conjured up a vision of herself and of her world. Kahlo’s drawings are rare owing to the fact they were meant as gifts and mementos for friends, as this drawing of Diego Rivera was. Rivera was Kahlo’s husband and with whom she had a strong but explosive relationship. This portrait is a playful example of her thoughts on her husband. This drawing was included in the Detroit Institute of Art’s exhibition on the year Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera spent in the city and the drawing showcases Kahlo’s emerging voice as an artist.

Mercedes Matter was an original member of the American Abstract Artists and an influential figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement. Alongside many of her fellow AbEx colleagues like Helen Frankenthaler and Lee Krasner, Matter studied under Hans Hoffman. The market for works by the historically undervalued AbEx women is increasing tremendously as their contributions to the movement gain overdue recognition. 
<br>
<br>Matter held "Still Life" (c. 1962-63) in her private collection for nearly 40 years, a testament to its personal value, and the current owner acquired it directly from her estate. It is a wonderful example of Matter's expressive brushwork and distinctive blend of abstract and figurative styles. She used visual sources for her paintings, such as the traditional still life, but deconstructed the objects into complete abstraction, maintaining a focus on capturing the energy and relationship between objects and spaces.

One of the most prominent modernist artists, Roberto Matta created artworks brimming with color and surrealist forms. Born in Chile, Matta worked for two years in modern architect Le Corbusier’s studio in Paris. He also formed strong friendships with Salvador Dalí and Andre Breton, officially joining the surrealists in 1937.
<br>
<br>This painting incorporates psychological responses to political and social concerns, hallmarks of Matta’s paintings influenced by the impact of World War II. The painting also contains his classic style of numerous, overlapping architectural planes. Matta deftly merges his surrealist background with the visual language of the Abstract Expressionists.

<br>
<br>Matter began creating large-scale charcoal on canvas works in the 1970s with the aim of approaching drawing with the same reverence as painting. The charcoal works are less common than her riotously colorful paintings, and they demonstrate Matter's proclivity for complex and dynamic compositions.

Chilean artist Roberto Matta worked for two years in modern architect Le Corbusier’s studio in Paris. There in the city, he formed strong friendships with Salvador Dalí and Andre Breton, officially joining the Surrealists in 1937.
<br>
<br>Matta’s paintings incorporate psychological responses to political and social concerns, influenced by the trauma of World War II. Layered on this is his classical style of overlapping architectural planes. In this way, Matta merges Surrealism, the language of Abstract Expressionism, and political identity.
<br>
<br>This painting shows all the hallmarks of Matta’s style. He layers architectonic features with machinery, a comment on the technological advances emerging during and after WWII. Against a striking background, Matta inhabits the canvas with biomorphic features, providing a contrast of shape and color for an electrifying work that appears to emerge from a dream

Theodoros Stamos was part of the first generation of Abstract Expressionists and “The Irascibles”. Like fellow AbEx artist and friend Barnett Newman, Stamos explored the possibilities of color which he combined with studies of light and location.
<br>
<br>This painting shows Stamos’s fascination with the symbolic and spiritual qualities of both paint, color, and shape. The stripes of color and the floating rectangle suggests “primitive” or “mythological” meaning. As the viewer, we begin to interpret the painting, not through what the shapes might represent, but through the subtle symbolism of the shapes and color, confronting our deeper connection to ourselves, the canvas, and society. 
<br>
<br>The piece is part of a wider series of Sun Box paintings Stamos created in the late 1960s and early 1970s. With each change of color and size altering the inherent symbolism, Stamos creates a different relationship between viewer and painting. Other Sun Box paintings can be found in the Tate Collection (London), the Whitney Museum (New York), and the Brooklyn Museum
