Fright Wig Green

2011

Turk the prankster re-re-cycler takes on Warhol, the original “queen” of appropriation in this playful hi-jack of Warhol’s Fright Wig self-portraits which depicted him in his infamous blonde wig. Fright Wig Green shows Turk as Warhol in an darkly ominous self-portrait which hints at a fictional artist somewhere between Warhol and Turk, real and fake, cult icon and hideous clown.
