Untitled (Retard/Para)

Item #6847

[Los Angeles]: Estate of Wallace Berman / Kohn Gallery, [ca. 2010s]. Offset. 21 x 17 in., matted to 24 x 20 in. Printed “W Berman” signature lower right. Near fine. 

Limited edition offset poster from the estate of Wallace Berman featuring the artist’s signature motif of a handheld transistor radio superimposed with found imagery. 

The image of a hand holding a compact transistor radio superimposed with found imagery was a common feature of Berman’s Verifax collages, his best-known body of work. Here four such images are arranged in a grid above a block of nonsense text, a graphic format used in several of his works. Includes a photo of Bob Dylan on lower right. .
