Dealer Notes
Note: "Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924 2005) was one of the pioneers of the pop art movement in the UK. Born in Scotland, Paolozzi was a compulsive collector and a jumbler of icons. The artist, who described himself as 'a wizard in Toytown', transformed the mundane, the derelict and the mass-produced into images that zap with electric eclecticism and impress with their graphic complexity. Carrots into pomegranates! Paolozzi's canny alchemy is vividly apparent in General Dynamic F.U.N, a series of fifty screenprints and photolithographs created between 1965 and 1970. In the series, Paolozzi employs the technologies of mass-reproduction and gorges on its idols the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood. For Paolozzi, the modern age, exposed as ephemera, is a necessarily fragmented collision of visual stimulus and influence, and his work is a health warning for an uncreative and thriftless society."
