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. “Before professionally painting, I spent a chunk of my early career in the fight to slow climate change. Now my focus lies on visually representing a deep love for the environment, as well as documenting contemporary life in a style that resonates with young minded people - and pays respect to the lineage of art history.” Todd began showing his work in 2018 and is grateful for a growing group of collectors across North America and Europe. Work begins in the digital realm where the artist can balance design and tweak colors with absolute freedom. With intricate masking and complex stencils, Todd converts his digital images into large, handmade oil paintings. The integration of digital tools into a traditional art practice helps to present a fresh and modern style that anyone who grew up on cartoons can relate to. Subject matter ranges widely from bucolic Hudson Valley landscapes, to abstract sunsets, and on to pop culture satire & iconography.
