Reisig & Taylor
- Pop (3D) Lenticular shows us what it looks like when Pop Art sees itself in the mirror, looking at itself in the lens. -
Having worked with some of the most iconic and influential figures in American popular culture in the last 25 years, few artists could claim greater influence than Reisig and Taylor in the evolution of the photograph as the cornerstone of Pop Art. From rock album covers to portraits of hip-hop artists, Reisig and Taylor have developed a tremendous oeuvre reflective of their scope, intensity, and skill as both artists and photographers. With the unique capacity to interrogate and breakdown the normative barriers between intimacy and estrangement, anonymity and celebrity, sexuality and conviviality, the force of the aperture as a way of cutting-through such dualistic entanglements emerges as the central strand carried throughout their body of work. Whether photographing a celebrity like Tupac Shakur or a personal family friend, Reisig and Taylor always maintain a certain tension between the world as it is seen and the world as it is lived—an aesthetic demand to see the world as we live it, rather than to live it as we see it.
Influenced the evolution
of the photograph as a cornerstone of Pop
Having worked with some of the most
iconic and influential figures in American
popular culture in the last 25 years,
Each piece literally pops
Awakened through the technology of lenticular (3D) photography,
Blending of medium and matter..
opening and closing, dilating and constricting… a hallucinogenic, virtuosic celebration.
Breaking down barriers together
Dancing between stillness and movement, serenity and chaos, familiarity and unknowing.
