Published on the occasion of the exhibition White Paintings, by Richard Prince.
Prince’s White Paintings are raw and energetic in comparison to his more straightforward “re-photographs” of the 1970s and the Monochromatic Jokes of the 1980s. In the White Paintings, handwritten and printed jokes mingle with gestural marks, silkscreened imagery, and graphic fragments all strewn across a white-pigmented backdrop. Prince’s hand is present in these works with their painterly white texture, spirited whorls, and handwritten jokes. In this series, he uses appropriation in a different fashion as he evokes the work of the great American painters of the 1950s such as Cy Twombly and Robert Rauschenberg.
