This is the elegantly appointed catalogue cum artist's book published in conjunction with two concurrent 1990 Koln gallery exhibitions of works by American painter and photographer Richard Prince. He presented some of his “Joke” paintings, ganged-up photographs, and painted car hoods. He began his “Joke” paintings by redrawing cartoons, then just used the jokes in paintings, written underneath layers of paint. His “Gang” work involved printing upwards of nine photos of a similar subject on one sheet, with white space between. The “Hood” paintings were actually car hoods that he sent away for, cut into a squared-off shape, then painted car colors on them. “I always thought my work would look like a giant magazine. There’d be a joke section, a photograph section, a painting section”, Richard Prince explains.
