When making his Oxidation paintings, Warhol laid his canvases down on the floor, coated them with copper paint, and then directed his assistants or visitors to his studio to urinate on them while the paint was still wet. The acid from the urine oxidized the metal in the copper paint, creating an abstract shimmering effect. Insisting on the importance of artistic skill when creating the paintings, Warhol explained: “If I asked someone to do an Oxidation painting, and they just wouldn’t think about it, it would just be a mess. Then I did it myself – and it’s just too much work – and you try to figure out a good design.”
Curated by Joakim Andreasson, the collection is part of Henzel Studio Heritage, an ongoing program of art rugs established with foundations and estates of the most prominent artists of the 20th century. For the second installment of Henzel Studio Heritage: Andy Warhol, Andreasson identified Warhol’s Oxidation Paintings from 1978 as a captivating series to examine after experiencing one of the pieces at Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again, exhibition at The Whitney Museum For American Art in New York, 2019. Hours later, at a pre-scheduled meeting with The Andy Warhol Foundation For The Visual Arts, minds were aligned to explore the paintings’ adaptability into the media of rugs further. After two years of painstaking development and production, the result is a remarkably seamless adaptation, where similar oxidation outcomes and comparable textures have been achieved.
