Andy Warhol: Set of Three Skateboards (Car Crash from Death & Disaster Series)
Warhol spoke of replicating images to empty them of their meanings. His Death and Disaster series—began with his famed portraits of Marilyn Monroe—attempts the same trick with macabre yet everyday images like electric chairs, funerals and car crashes. Commenting on the fragility of life, Warhol said, "Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?" Here, his work Disaster #2 has been interpreted as a skateboard deck triptych in a limited edition of 5000. Hanging wall mounts included.
