Scott King
Pink Cher

2008

Screenprint and paint on canvas

300 x 200 cm
Scott King’s artworks are infused with a cunning media savviness that deftly navigates between product, messaging, and desire. Reminiscent of Warhol’s screen print portraits, with all of their commodified garishness, King’s Cher stands in for counter-culture hero Che Guevera, a rebel-icon and its lost meaning, long dissipated by mass reproduction. Emblazoned in acid-house pink, left-wing radicalism becomes fused with celebrity obsession, a contemporary by-product of cultural dysmorphia. Nostalgic of the politicised youth of Thatcher’s Britain, now recaptured and packaged as fashion, King posits contemporary insurgency as homogenised consumer choice.

Scott King
“The artist should never contemplate making a work of art that is about something; a successful work of art can only ever be about nothing. The artist’s complete negation of intent thus creating a reflective surface into which the critic, curator or collector can gaze and see only himself. Sol LeWitt, Paragraphs on Conceptual Art, 1967”

Representing gallery, New York. Selected images, biographical information and press release creativereview.co.uk Picture this: Anna Wintour has resigned. The sheer effort of keeping an immaculate bob and an unfeasibly large pair of sunglasses in place 24 hours a day has finally taken its toll. In a move that has shocked the fashion industry, American Vogue has appointed as her successor graphic-designer-turned-artist Scott King.
