Richard Prince

Richard Prince Oedipus Schmidipus

Richard Prince lives and works in upstate New York. Prince has used images from mass media, advertising and entertainment since the late seventies chronicling American Subculture and vernaculars and their role in the construction of American identity.

He has explored racism, sexism and psychosis in mainstream humour including the popular "Jokes" series; the mythical status of cowboys, bikers, customised cars and celebrities. He also probes the push-pull allure of pulp fiction and soft porn.
