About

Andy Warhol's Wig and Glasses "Silkscreen" Marilyn Color Series 6x7 format film, NYC 1987 "Silkscreen" Series London 1997 Chromogenic Print on Aluminum *Also available on paper. Please inquire regarding sizing and prices* Available sizes: 24 x 20 inches Edition size: 10 48 x 40 inches Edition size: 5 Signed, titled, dated, and annotated on the reverse. The color coordination in this series references Warhol’s, Marilyn silkscreen series. The colors and the sudo- silkscreen of the wig pictures were created by David Gamble using the Quantel Paintbox system over a series of weeks using complex techniques of reversing contrasts and mixing acid colors while keeping the original picture intact. About the artist: David Gamble is a multidisciplinary artist from London, now based in New Orleans. His body of work consists of paintings, works on paper, and photographs, all of which have been exhibited globally. Throughout the 1980s and '90s, Gamble worked as one of the foremost international editorial photographers for publications such as The Observer, The Independent, LIFE, Fortune, The New Yorker, Newsweek, Paris Match, The Sunday Times, and many more. Over his decades-long career spanning the editorial, journalistic, and fine art realms, Gamble has photographed such illustrious figures as Stephen Hawking and the Dalai Lama with several of his portraits included in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. In 1987, Gamble won the Kodak Award for Best Photographer in Europe as well as a World Press Photo Award in 1988 for his portrait of Stephen Hawking, which was featured as the notable cover of Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. In 1988 Sotheby’s New York hosted one of the most talked-about auctions of the decade, the sale of the Estate of Andy Warhol. In addition to paintings and sculpture, some of the most hotly sought- after items were Warhol’s personal effects, including, décor, clothing, and even his 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The goal of the sale was to raise funds for the then fledgling Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Soon after Warhol’s death photographer David Gamble was permitted access to Warhol’s East 66th street House, Factory and Warehouse. There, he captured the placement of Warhol’s belongings as the artist had lived with them over the years. Rather than simply documenting the space, Gamble’s careful still-lifes capture the humanity and fierce individuality of the artist.
