Banana Andy Warhol Painting
Figurative & Dripping Oil painting on canvas
130 x 89 cm
On a canvas with a white background, the artist Amaury Dubois, has painted a banana. A simple fruit but intersected by seven lines that intersect and break pieces from which seems to drip a spurt of yellow and red paint mixing: a dripping.
To create this painting, Amaury Dubois was inspired by the famous painting "Banana" by Andy Warhol.
He had drawn it for the cover of "The Velvet Underground and Nico", the first album of the New York rock band, released in 1967 and produced by Warhol. It was an "image of a banana with the caption ''Peel slowly and you will see''. Under the sticker was a pink, phallic-looking banana. The recording of the album took place during a series of artistic performances designed by Warhol. The commercial failure of this "banana album" will not prevent it from marking the history of rock.
Amaury Dubois wanted to measure himself against this iconic work and, by appropriating it perfectly, recreate an original work. The painting is an exact copy of the banana used by Warhol, who himself had used the image of an advertisement of the time. However, the deformations induced by the lines are the signature of Amaury Dubois. Is the glass broken? The viewer is confused, he tries to reconstitute by thought the image skilfully destroyed by the artist who continues his destruction by a dripping out of the fruit that seems to decompose ...
Would this still life be a "vanity"? A pictorial way of representing the precariousness of life or the transformation and amused destruction of a work so well known that it can be found on all our everyday objects?
