You Had Me At Hello: 150 Contemporary Artworks That Altered My Consciousness - Part 3

I look at a lot of art. Some of it good, some of it bad. Every once in a while, I come across artwork that fundamentally changes me, even if I don’t understand it at the time. A friend of mine recently asked me which works had had the greatest impact on me over the years, so I compiled my thoughts. This is not a greatest hits list and many artists I love are not included in it. These are all works that have been, for whatever reason, seared into my brain. To be honest, there are a number of artists on this list whose overall practice I am not a particular fan of, yet, they got to me at least once. – Steven Zevitas, Publisher

Busted Open Abstraction: Fritz Chesnut on Richard Prince

Painter Fritz Chesnut first stumbled across Richard Prince, the artist whose repurposed photographs of cowboys, bikers and open roads made Americana sexier and more sinister, when still an undergraduate in Santa Cruz. “I think I was in the library just combing through books,” he says. “I remember discovering Rauschenberg the same way. Just grabbing this big glossy book and thumbing through it and being completely fascinated.” - Catherine Wagley, LA Contributor
