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 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.”
