Media Gallery
Drawings and collages, often executed in brush and ink or watercolor, constitute Los Angeles-based artist Raymond Pettibon’s (b. 1957) primary medium, but he has also produced videos intermittently since the 1980s. This animated video combines Pettibon’s drawings with a chorus of voices delivering audio narration, often to jarring and dissonant effect.

About

Drawings and collages, often executed in brush and ink or watercolor, constitute Los Angeles-based artist Raymond Pettibon’s (b. 1957) primary medium, but he has also produced videos intermittently since the 1980s. This animated video combines Pettibon’s drawings with a chorus of voices delivering audio narration, often to jarring and dissonant effect. As Pettibon himself has expressed it, “In some ways, the drawings can have a lot in common with something like the video format, because, in a way, they both imply at least a sort of a beginning and maybe a past and a future in a way.”
