For the most part, as you know, the public response to the epidemic was Warhol’s fear, even when dying, his friends and lovers. The only picture of Warhol, in which he addresses this issue – it’s ‘AIDS / Jeep / Bike’ that during the life of Warhol was not present (perhaps because it was incomplete or was the initial phase of the project group). The uniqueness of the picture is that it does not contain any treatment, nor those of any control mechanism gap between what is embodied, and that is abstracted. Instead, there is only absence. On a bicycle and a Jeep no one goes.
This is the most melancholy picture of Warhol at the depressed sense of the word, it displays the failed attempt to grief, inability to assign any form of publicity, which could arrange it. Warhol & TV. Warhol – one of the few filmmakers of the American underground scene, whose name is known to the general public. In his early films such as ‘Dream’ (1963) and ‘Empire’ (1964), the principle of repetition becomes almost hypnotic effect. The only way – a night view of the Empire State Building or a sleeping man – is projected on the screen during many hours with little or no change in the total absence of sound. Although in later films, created in the mid-1960s, there is a scene (often erotic), the author’s position as an impartial Observer will continue throughout the work. In 1969, Warhol created the first feature film, ‘flesh’, followed by ‘Garbage’ (1970). And in the films themselves, and in the process of creation present a significant element of parody commercial cinema.
In the period from 1966 to 1968 Warhol shot some movies with a group of ‘Velvet Underground’. In 1980, Warhol decided to organize their own TV. He drafted a new cable channel (Andy Warhol’s TV) and became its director. Andy Uorhel was, without doubt, a prominent artist of his generation. He was endlessly in love with contemporary culture in all its banality and outright consumerism. He was fascinated by the idea of art and business, noticing that “Success in business – the most interesting art form.” He turned over on its head and turned inside out, and it had worked. In his paintings can not be said that they were painted by human hand, not to mention the traditional receptions. His sculpture is reminiscent of the box, which brought a messenger boy. He rented movies, where there was virtually no movement … As far as artistic originality of work, it just was not thinking about it … As far as recognition, which is usually crowned by a high art, if successful, it also did not attach any importance to this and said that he would like to fifteen minutes everyone in the world has become famous.
