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. This, in his own words, produces “a perfect marriage of photorealism and a paint-by-number system”.
Speaking on the muse for this piece, Billy says: “She was my scorekeeper for my baseball team, ‘Billy’s Angels’ in Jackson, Wyoming in the 1980s. She was also a National Park Service Ranger for Grand Teton National Park, north of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.”
