“appropriation of similes, once strictly the providence of kitsch, has nothing to do with blurring the distinctions between high and low. Instead, rainbows and butterflies have come to symbolize a magical new world where order is without hierarchies, edification is without snobbishness, prosperity is without greed, and most importantly, where imagination and consumption are exceedingly valued. This is the world of Rob Pruitt. Pruitt acts as a conduit, shuffling images from mass culture to high art production. He also subscribes to the empowering and inventive ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude of visual design and art making”

Original item from “Rob Pruitt’s bookclub”. For a while around 10 years ago, every day Rob Pruitt would sell a selection of his books from his personal collection online or as part of his “art sales”. Each book was stamped with a bookmark indicating that it comes from his ‘Bookclub collection”. “Rob Pruitt was born in Washington D.C. in 1964 and studied at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington D.C. and Parsons School of Design in New York. He lives and works in New York. Since the early 1990s, Rob Pruitt’s risk-taking investigations into American popular culture have taken many forms. From his notorious Cocaine Buffet (1998) and glitter portraits of Pandas or the significant Suicide Paintings series, Pruitt’s works are a surreal and extravagant interpretation of the pop world, a kaleidoscopic look towards mass culture by exploring the multiples aspects and the paradoxes of our present time”
