Panama born turner New York City, Jackson Pollack obsessed Richard Prince is a true iconic talent. His talent made more real by the haunting simplicity of his photographs. He layers and combines pictures with symbolic and sometimes random relationship. Thus applying his understanding of the complex transactions of representation to the making of art, he evolved a unique signature filled with echoes of other signatures yet that is unquestionably his own. An avid collector and perceptive chronicler of American subcultures and he has probed the depths of racism, sexism, and psychosis in mainstream humor; the mythical status of cowboys, bikers, customized cars, and celebrities.
