Andy in Nature
October 15 - November 9$5
Andy in Nature is a collection of never before seen photographs of Andy Warhol by his personal friend and photographer Christopher Makos.
Artists Christopher Makos and Paul Solberg, aka the “Hilton Brothers”, are pleased to announce a joint exhibition. This unique exhibit features a selection of Makos’ photographs centered on an unexplored yet rich dimension of Andy Warhol’s life and his relationship with the natural world.
Exhibit Days & Hours: Thursday 12:00 – 5:00 pm, Friday 1:00 – 7:00 pm, Saturday 1:00 pm- 7:00 pm, and Sunday 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
“Andy in Nature” explores Warhol through a very different lens, that of photographer Christopher Makos, who was by Warhol’s side for much of the 1970s and 80s. In the series of photographs Makos presents here, we see a new and under-appreciated, if not unknown, dimension of Warhol exposed. His love of nature and how he relied on natural environments to re-center him.
Paul Solberg’s work highlights and expands upon the one aspect of Warhol’s appreciation for nature which is well-known… his interest in flowers. Warhol famously made over 10,000 silkscreen prints of flowers in bloom during his career. Most notably, his 1964 Hibiscus series, executed during the height of the “Flower Power” era.
These images will be exhibited alongside Paul Solberg’s well-known flower works. Their combined images bring a celebratory approach to the natural world that is made even more meaningful by the historic exhibition venue, Forester’s Hall.
