Keith Hartley is Chief Curator and Deputy Director of Modern and Contemporary Art at the National Galleries of Scotland.
His book, Andy Warhol & Eduardo Paolozzi – I Want to Be a Machine, offers a compare-and-contrast examination of two very different artists with much in common.
Illustrating their fascination with popular culture, it was only in the 1960s that the artists made the step to mechanical means to create their own artworks, resulting in the iconic images that are integral to our culture. As Warhol said of himself, there is only surface, with nothing underneath.
