MORE INFORMATION:


"His appropriations of Jasper Johns, for example, seem steeped in respect for the painterly qualities and conceptual rigor of works such as Tennyson, Drawer, and the ‘Flag’ paintings. He treats Johns' works as worthy readymades whose complex surfaces demand attention, even in small scale." –from Michael Duncan's essay "A Snow Shovel is Nice: The Works of Richard Pettibone," published in Richard Pettibone: A Retrospective.
