Jonathan Horowitz biography
So who is Jonathan Horowitz? The New York based artist delights in revealing connections between different means of communication. Horowitz's video and sound works pack a punch by colliding pop culture and politics. In 2004 he famously placed the New York Post front page honouring Ronald Reagan's life next to a photograph of a man dying of Aids.

Pop-cultural icons guide the way through these canvases, which are greatly influenced by Roy Lichtenstein's slanting bands of colour and chains of dots known as Ben Day dots. You'll find a reproduction of Lichtenstein's style on an enormous scale in this Sadie Coles exhibition. Pop Art gets a facelift in a series of painstaking self-portraits painted freehand. The luminous face of Beyoncé is also a recurring theme, reinventing those famous Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe screen prints. Transporting Warhol's screen print into the digital realm, Horowitz blows up Beyoncé's image up to an enormous scale, creating a sea of inkjet dots which refer to our familiarity with downloading and reposting images constantly.
Don't miss this curious new exhibition at Sadie Coles where the lines between art and the digital are considerably blurred.
