Mel Smothers, ‘Andy Dialog 271’, 2017, Carter Burden Gallery

ABOUT THE ANDY DIALOGS; I found myself painting Andy Warhol images in the background of my paintings as a fun thing, the channeling of a dead artist, celebrity vs nature as art, and art historical precedents.
There are over 500 works since beginning the Andy Dialogs 12 years ago. This subject is the Popcorn Plant. It’s a rare plant found in NYC Central Park, at the 69th St entrance. It is the last plant to bloom before winter.
