Description - I Want to Be A Machine: Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi by Keith Hartley
Through the early works of Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi, this book traces the development of their deep fascination with the machine. Looking at the way that both artists began in the late 1940s and the years following, the book illustrates their fascination with popular culture and the methods that they used in creating their art. Common to all their methods of making works was their hand-made quality. Only in the 1960s did the artists make the step to mechanical means to create their own artworks, resulting in the iconic images that are integral to our culture. As Warhol said of himself, there is only surface, with nothing underneath. AUTHOR: Keith Hartley is Chief Curator and Deputy Director at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
