32 Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol
As part of my series for Monochromasters I sometimes make monochromes of a series of works by one artist. I thought it was interesting to see what would happen if I made a monochromaster version of every one of the 32 Campbell’s Soup cans by Andy Warhol. This work is famous for being objective, repetitive, machine-like. How would it function as a series of monochromes?
The resulting set of 32 monochromes, arranged in the same way as the originals are in the MOMA in New York
I based the monochromes on a high-res image that I licensed from Scala, who does rights management for the Warhol estate. This is a lower resolution version of the source image:
I needed to do some perspective correction on the photo to be able to crop the cans individually. Then I saved them each under their name and number and ran the program.
