John Berkey
Madonna, 1998

1998

$3,750

About

This original casein on board published illustration painting shows the singer Madonna as a celestial being standing in the middle of a classic John Berkey starscape. With her arms outstretched, she appears to bring light to a universe filled with space junk. The illustration was created to accompany an article in the January 1999 issue of Spin magazine about faddish spirituality in pop music and culture. This trend reached an apex with Madonna's appearance at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards, where she began a performance of her hit song "Ray of Light" by singing the Sanskrit chant that opens Ashtanga yoga practices. She performed with a number of dancers in traditional Indian costuming. The performance was considered groundbreaking and offended many, or in other words, it was classic Madonna. Framed dimensions: 18.5" x 22" Image dimensions: 15" x 18.25"
