About The Artwork

Andy Warhol is synonymous with many things – I’m pretty sure he was one of the first, if not the first, to wear blue jeans with a suit jacket. In terms of his work, everyone thinks of silk screens and his famous Polaroid portraits. Even though Andy, to me, never seemed comfortable in his skin, he often turned the camera on himself and created some of the best, most avant-garde self-portraits I’ve seen. Andy died suddenly and unexpectedly in 1987 and just prior to that, he put together a series of shots – his last self-portraits – in preparation for a gallery show of large screen prints. Instead of using make-up and lighting to make himself look good, he isolated his head on a black background and looked deadpan into the camera with terrible shadows and messed up silver wigs. It’s this harsh depiction of himself that creates the power in these photographs. From these photos, Warhol made several large works depicting himself in fright wigs – some were intensely colored in electric blue, hot pink, and fluorescent green and with some, Andy experimented with camouflage – a radical design element we still see reverberating throughout both the art and fashion worlds three and a half decades later.

Upstate NY painter, Todd Koelmel, enjoys a practice that allows a back & forth flow between digital and analog art. His graphic style and use of hard edges lends itself to simplification – a boiling down that’s both nostalgic and modern. A wide set of interests and influences allow Todd to overlay his filter onto landscapes, portraits, still lifes, typography, abstracts, sculptures, and video. His work appears in private collections across the US, Europe, and Asia. Todd’s process begins methodically where shapes, color, composition, and concepts are condensed and flattened into modern, digital art. The transformation from digital art to analog paintings incorporates stencils, masking tape, and traditional oils laid down in solid blocks of color and chiaroscuro lines. Studio photography and YouTube videos convert the analog paintings back into digital art. With a background in engineering and design, Todd’s paintings pay respect to many artists throughout history and continues the lineage with a fresh breath of 21st century air.
