Fusing Navajo culture, spaghetti westerns and tongue-in-cheek humour, Billy Schenck – also known as the ‘Warhol of the West’ – takes viewers on an exhilarating trek through Western mythology.
With accomplished use of chiaroscuro, Billy projects photographs from Western movie stills and fills the outlines with flat, hard-edged areas of colour. His fiery horizons and landscapes are formed from distinct geographical locations and his childhood memories of summers spent in the high deserts of Wyoming.
He adds: "I wanted to do with my paintings what Sergio Leone had done with film. No other genre in the last 200 years can compete. It has a timeless quality, and still has infinite possibilities to explore."
