New York artist Deborah Kass has just created a new print in support of Democratic POTUS nominee, Hillary Clinton. Her work has often co-opted Warhol’s style (and others) to make statements. This work mimics Andy’s iconic screenprint Vote McGovern from ’72. George W. Bush was the incumbent and John Kerry the Democratic challenger a dozen years ago,
“I first wanted to do a work like this in 2004. There was no way to make it happen then but sometimes the perfect opportunity comes up at another point in your life. It’s always been in the back of my mind, but anyway, it wouldn’t have been as much fun with Mitt Romney. It’s the right image for the right election.”
The print is an edition of 250 and can be purchased through the Clinton campaign. (Kass’s gallery in New York, Paul Kasmin is compiling names. You can write to them at firstname.lastname@example.org) They sell for $1000 with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Hey, that’s a quarter of a million bucks, Deborah! Thank you. I’m sure Donald Trump secretly thanks you too. His ego surely loves the image even though the message is little off point.
