#WARHOLWEDNESDAY - Committee 2000
BY Helen Smith ON September 14, 2022 IN Gallery Blog
This screenprint, like many of Warhol’s artworks, began life as a Polaroid. The artist famously carried with him a Big Shot Polaroid, a plastic $19.99 camera that was manufactured to produce instant portraits. Whilst portraits were the favoured subject for Warhol and his Polaroid camera, he also used it to explore and play with the still life genre, snapping various objects from different angles and compositions. For Andy Warhol, there was nothing better than the Polaroid which could so perfectly synthesise his two main obsessions- celebrity and the mass-production of images.
