About The Artwork

“Jackie VHS (Gold)” is a work from September 2013. I wanted to visually explore what it would be like to jam an Andy Warhol painting through a VCR. The VCR seems like a perfectly Warholian way of copying and editing snippets of culture, and it seemed especially apt to reference this technology by using the process of silkscreen printing which is often used for copying and reproduction as well (and was Warhol’s primary way of making work). Warhol’s famous portrait of Jackie Kennedy has been altered in Photoshop using tracking lines and static as additional visual elements referencing the disconnect between the perception of a mediated persona and reality. This new composition was then silkscreened on canvas in black ink, hand painted, then silkscreened again completing the piece.

Alexander Key is an emerging contemporary artist from Charlotte, North Carolina. His work appropriates a wide variety of cultural ephemera, extracting familiar aesthetics and re-contextualizing them into new compositions that act as bittersweet commentaries. Mining from the resonance of childhood images and personal nostalgia, he explores the impact of these mental keepsakes on a broader collective memory. Working primarily in the medium of silkscreen printing, his work ranges from monotone prints to densely layered paintings. Please reach out if you are interested in showing his work or want to know more about his artistic practice.
