Must-See: Richard Prince Ripple Paintings at Gladstone Gallery

This is a classic Richard Prince repurposed process, and one that makes him so great. Distortions come in a new way of working with the selected mediums own process of development. In this exhibit, he turns his focus on the classic Playboy Magazine illustrations by Doug Sneyd - the small place of humor from the magazine. Some references: 

 
From Gladstone Gallery, written by Joan Katz, a journalist who has known Richard Prince since 1989. In 1990 Prince and Katz formed a band called Black Bra when they were both living in Rome.
 
“The cartoons that were submitted to the magazine were watercolors. That’s what was handed in, delivered to the art director. It was how they were made. Gouache on illustration board. Sketch, wash, and punch line. I bought the magazines on e-bay. I bought thirty-six issues. I flipped thru the magazine and tore my favorite “toons” out of the magazine, put the torn page on the floor, and poured more watercolor on the cartoon. Water on water. My red watercolor on their yellow cartoon. Fifty/fifty. My contribution? My psychotic breakdown of my psychic connection. Also a contrasting color. My red water on their yellow water. I would come back the next morning and my red would dry in its own way. It had personality. Travel, leak, pool, stains and puddles. And on the way to drying, the dry would ripple the paper. The pour would do its thing. A secret ‘cover’. The drying stayed up all night. Land of a thousand dances. The spread of my watercolor really didn’t have to do with me. It was independent. The form had a life of its own, a mind of its own, and each morning after ‘the evaporation’… I got
a surprise.”
