Warhol Naked

Warhol Naked

"warhol Naked by Jack Armstrong"

 This original painting is acrylic on canvas and measures 24x36 & was painted in 2001. "WARHOL NAKED" is my seminal piece in the creation of {Cosmic Extensionalism} a technique of art which I founded in 1999, and is individually {exclusive} to myself."

This work was shown internationally in the media and on the internet in the promotion of the "Cosmic Starship Harley Davidson," the world's most valuable, Art Motorcycle. The painting is a tribute and a celebration of my friendship with Andy Warhol who called me; "the last wizard of art," in 1985 shortly before his death. Mr. Warhol taught me that "individuality" can overcome {all} opposition in life, and in art.

When you create something so unique and {different} from the norm, it takes years for the critics and the art world to catch up with proper recognition and pricing, and embrace the new concept. "But as with all great artists as Van Gogh, Gauguin, Modigliani and Warhol, the pricing (rises} with the rarity and uniqueness, of the {process} used." 

"This is what makes the creation of a masterpiece possible." "The boldness to paint a vision; that has never been painted before of something so different and {rare,} that it becomes iconic, and {represents} the essence of the artist; and his work. "Warhol Naked" is my {vision of a man} who created "soup-cans," as art, and was laughed at by the critics of his time, until he transformed himself into the most{iconic-figure} in the art world." "Most of the soup cans did not sell; when they were first exhibited in 1962; at 100 dollars each." "The lack of sales did not deter Warhol, in 1962, as it did not deter Van Gogh or Modigliani earlier." "Visionary's are free from the false concept of {acceptance} or {non} acceptance of themselves, in their ideas, or in their creations, which limits all {non} visionaries into accepting {conventional} thinking; instead of creating {revolutionary} ideas, and artistic invention."

"By the time of his death in 1987, Warhol was the most famous artist in the world". The bright, bold, deeply shaped red, shining surface of the painting over the blue graffiti cosmic art written with the word {Warhol,} in "bright-white" acrylic paint, symbolizes Warhol's triumph over the art system of {his} time.

"Now "everything" is considered art, and everyone an artist, because of Andy's work, in {art} and {film.}" "Now "everyone" is a film maker." "The freedom to {be human,} and try {everything} is the most basic human right in the world." "Warhol was the liberator, of the human artistic experience." "He was my friend, and this painting {symbolizes} my breakthrough in my own process of becoming the best individually "unique" artist of my time, and shunning {all} art systems." "Cosmic Extensionalism Art; is a direct result of the {freedom} I experienced when discussing art and "technique," with the most famous pop artist in the world, Andy Warhol.

"WARHOL NAKED IS MY FINEST WORK, AND IN THE FUTURE WILL BE A LASTING ICON OF THIS CENTURY'S MOST APPRECIATED, {NEW} ART. "EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE; FOR THE {VISIONARY} WHO BELIEVES IN THEIR OWN WORK, AND THEIR {OWN} VISION,"MOST PEOPLE, {AND ARTIST'S} IN THE WORLD; ARE TAUGHT TO BELIEVE IN THE VISION OF OTHERS." THE [ORIGINAL} PAINTING; "WARHOL NAKED." IS MY [FINEST] VISION.
