Richard Prince - High Times

Publisher Gagosian

ISBN 9781938748653

Mining images from mass media, advertising, and entertainment since the late 1970s, Richard Prince has redefined the concepts of authorship, ownership, and aura. Applying his understanding of the complex transactions of representation to the making of art, he evolved a unique signature filled with echoes of other signatures yet that is unquestionably his own. An avid collector and perceptive chronicler of American subcultures and vernaculars and their role in the construction of American identity, he has probed the depths of racism, sexism, and psychosis in mainstream humor and most recently, the push-pull allure of pulp fiction and soft porn.
