Raphael DiLuzio (American/New Orleans, b. 1960), "Dinner with Andy", 1992, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, "Tilden-Foley Gallery, New Orleans, LA" label with artist, title and date en verso, 60 1/4 in. x 44 1/4 in., framed. Provenance: Tilden-Foley Gallery, New Orleans. Note: Visual artist, Raphael DiLuzio uses a variety of media to express his fanciful visions. The works he creates convey concepts untethered by the constraints of space, time and reality. This powerful combination of elements is particularly evident in the canvas offered here. DiLuzio depicts Andy Warhol immersed in a chaotic scene. While the painter’s modern interpretation of a classical putto fills iconic soup cans with paint, Warhol struggles with another putto who has latched onto his paintbrush. The rest of the canvas is filled with loud and frenzied patterns and happenings that energize the composition. As a result, Diluzio succeeds in turning the foremost pop artist into pop art.
