Richard Pettibone

b. 1938 Los Angeles
A.A Pasadena City College, Pasadena
MFA Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles
Lives and works in the USA

Richard Pettibone is a pioneer of appropriation. Famed for creating miniature reproductions of artwork created by artists such as Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol, Pettibone pays homage to modern masters in pocket-sized hand painted silkscreens and canvases.

Pettibone cites Warhol's 1962 Warhol exhibition at the Ferus Gallery, LA and a 1963 Duchamp retrospective at the Pasadena Art Musuem as great influences. Building on the idea of Duchamp's "readymade" Pettibone selected existing artworks as his source material. He began by reproducing artworks from photographs in Artforum magazine: replicating the scale of the advert and adding his own nuanced modifications. He interrogates our understanding of artistic originality with wit and humour. While appropriating the work of pop art pioneers Pettibone steers our attention to the way artists such as Warhol appropriated existing imagery and made us look at these images anew.
