    Tom Wesselmann / Still Life Number 36 / 1964

The enormous sandwich and pack of cigarettes in Still Life Number 36 reflect Tom Wesselmann's nonhierarchical approach to subject matter and technique. He believed that anything could be art, including the ordinary consumer items that fill our pockets and kitchen cabinets.

In 1962 Wesselmann began a series of large-scale still fifes that incorporated fragments of discarded commercial billboards, which he initially scavenged from trash cans but later procured in new, pristine condition directly from advertising agencies.

The larger-than-life proportions of the objects in Still Life Number 36 at first seem to celebrate the surfeit of commercial goods in America's postwar consumer culture. Yet the layers of collage and painted areas bring together incongruent depictions of reality, creating tensions in the composition that Wesselmann described as "reverberations." #tomwesselmann #stilllife #popart #americandream #consumerism #collage #americanart #artofamerica #whitneymuseum #weekendartwalks #artlovers #artdaily #paintingoftheday #artcritic #artofinstagram

    JÓVENES ENTUSIASTAS (2019)
“Determinadas prácticas creativas son condecoradas como ‘trabajo’ mientras que otras que conllevan la misma pasión y energía no lo son. Urge entonces pensar qué practicas y qué razones derivan a esta consideración como trabajo o empleo (de la que se traduce un pago económico y una emancipación de quien trabaja y controla vida y tiempo), frente a prácticas que aspiran a un pago con visibilidad, afecto y reconocimiento.”
Remedios Zafra, “El entusiasmo”
