Richard PETTIBONE

1938, USA

Also known as: RP

Name Richard PETTIBONE
Birth 1938, USA

Since the early 1960s, questioned Richard Pettibone, the relatively newly established Pop Art, the Pop-Art, before the term itself was even properly established. Through his art, which is about art, Richard Pettibone puts his finger on the modern art\'s ambition to create something of their own. He maintains that it is better to copy a great masterpieces than produce its own poor original.

Redan i början av 1960-talet ifrågasatte Richard Pettibone den relativt nyetablerade popkonsten, the Pop-Art, innan termen i sig ens var riktigt etablerad. År 1964 målade han två små, exakta kopior av Andy Warhols målning från 1962, Campbell Soup Can (Pepper Pot). En i grönt och en i grått, båda stämpelsignerade med Warhols namn och sitt eget. Pettibone berör alltså en av postmodernismens kärnfrågor tjugo år för tidigt: original kontra kopia.
Richard Pettibone ställer med sin konst frågor som: Vem äger en konstnärlig idé? Vad betyder material och hantverk för konstverket? Vad, egentligen, är originalitet? Varför måste så mycket av konsten vara så stor? Vad är essensen i en minatyr? Vad händer när betraktaren får se en mindre version av ett stort känt verk?
Förutom Andy Warhol har Pettibone utforskat verk av fler konstikoner; Leonardo da Vinci, Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella och Roy Lichtenstein.
Genom sin konst, som handlar om konst, sätter Richard Pettibone fingret på den moderna konstens strävan efter att skapa något eget.
Själv menar han att det är bättre att kopiera ett bra mästerverk än att framställa ett eget dåligt original.
