"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
PREVIEW: Raymond Pettibon in Season 2 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" (2003)
A cult figure associated with the Los Angeles punk rock scene, Raymond Pettibon has acquired a reputation as one of the foremost artists working with drawing, text, and artist's books. Pettibon is as likely to explore the subject of surfing as he is typography; themes from art history and nineteenth-century literature appear in the same breath with the American politics from the 1960s.
Raymond Pettibon is featured in the Season 2 episode "Humor" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
