Pacifico Silano, ‘Father Figure’, 2017, Rubber Factory

In the project John John, Pacifico Silano sources imagery of John F. Kennedy Jr. from vintage tabloid magazines and newspapers, reworking their content and meaning through silkscreen, monotype, and photo-collage.

In "Father Figure," the uncanny likeness in demeanor and the media's portrayal of the elder and junior JFK are on display. Silano has cut these images from their original print source, arranged and photographed them to create the image seen here.
