Week 1

Q: Look at the work of: Polke, Rauschenberg, Lichtenstein, and Warhol and found relations with the work of Jeremy.

Jeremy Scheuch’s imagery and inspiration are mined from magazines, celebrity blogs, vintage dictionaries, clip art, thrift stores and flea markets. Jeremy loves unicorns, kittens, dolphins, rainbows, dinosaurs and America.

Sigmar Polke experimented with a wide range of styles, subject matters and materials. He concentrated on photography, and produced abstract works created by chance through chemical reactions between paint and other products.He produced paintings focused on historical events and perceptions of them. Polke’s early work has often been characterized as European Pop art for its depiction of everyday subject matter – sausages, bread and potatoes – combined with images from the mass media. He imitated the dotted effect of commercial newsprint by painstakingly painting each dot with the rubber at the end of a pencil. 

Robert Rauschenberg was an American painter and graphic artist whose early works anticipated the pop art movement. Rauschenberg is well known for his Combines, non-traditional materials and objects were employed in innovative combinations. His Combine works blurred the distinctions between painting and sculpture, as their flat surfaces were augmented with discarded materials and appropriated images. He was both a painter and a sculptor and the Combines are a combination of both, but he also worked with photography, printmaking, papermaking and performance.


Roy Lichtenstein was an American pop artist. His work defined the basic premise of pop art through parody. Favoring the comic strip as his main inspiration, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a tongue-in-cheek humorous manner. His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He described pop art as “not ‘American’ painting but actually industrial painting”.


Andy Warhol was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. Warhol’s art encompassed many forms of media, including hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music.


 They all are pop artists and have their own inspirations from differrent mediums such as the magazines, photographs, paintings, sculptures etc. They all produced abstract works by combining diferent mediums.
