ABOUT THE 'NIGHTMARE' SERIES
Pure Evil explains that a chance email from a Chinese “copy village” gave impetus to his “Nightmare Series.” The village offered, via email, a list of artists it could reproduce, including three small jpeg images of Andy Warhol paintings. Warhol’s entire artistic output has been distilled right down to three small 64 x64 pixel thumbnails of Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor and an Electric Chair and this became the inspiration for a series of 'Nightmares' : doomed and dripping celebrity portraits. Why are they crying ? “Its an illustration of the heartbreak and sadness we have all experienced in relationships in the past.”
