Apotheosis No. 2 (View from the GW Bridge, 1937)

About

Apotheosis No. 2 (View from the GW Bridge, 1937), 2018 oil on canvas 37 x 46" Gipe derives his paintings from an “irredeemable” image pool of ideological photographs. Since the 1980s, every work has come from an archive of propaganda tracts, social realist photography books and other art “approved” by politically driven authorities. Appropriating imagery from photo journals and magazines from the 1930s to the 1970s, his paintings translate small black and white images into large, visually seductive color works. Radically severed from their original contexts, the intention is for these reinterpretations to actively force the spectator to reconstruct the images' ideological significance.
