Art Appreciation Part 2

I have sent you an e-mail providing you with the name of TWO artist and the titles of their pieces from assignment 1. Please find the following information about the artists. You will e-mail me your findings in a WORD.DOC file to:

1. The DATE of the artwork

2. The NATIONALITY of the Artist

3. The MEDIUM/MEDIA of the artwork (example: painting, drawing, sculpture, video)

4. The IMPORTANCE, SIGNIFICANCE, and/or REASON why the artist made the artwork. In other words why is the artist and artwork important? What is the message the artist is trying to communicate?


Artist: Raymond Pettibon
Title: Untitled/It's Almost Like Driving In West Texas
Date of artwork: 2008
Nationality of artist: American
Media of artwork: Pen, ink, gouache and acrylic on paper
Significance of artwork: This is different than most of his artworks because he is using color and typically his images are black and white. He is commenting on George Bush's foreign policy regarding Iraq and Afghanistan by making a Texas reference with a tank. Pettibon's captions are quotes from various sources and he claims that his drawing and captions have no relation to one another.
