The iconography of 1960s America in Girls and Car creates a captivating social narrative, typical of Mercedes Helnwein’s imagery. Heavily inspired by American culture and way of life, her work is known for its large-scale oil pastels, predominantly populated by nurses, beauty queens, witches, girl gangs, bridesmaids, and the visual theatrics of adolescence.
Drawing on entirely personal influences ranging from feminism, nineteenth century Russian literature or Blues music, her visual art soon attracted art market attention when at only 21 years, she moved to Los Angeles (USA). Helnwein works in a wide range of media, from painting, drawing to experimental film. She is also influenced by the comic aesthetics of illustrator Crumb and Daniel Clowes's Ghost World or the sharp literature of Bukowski.
A subtly innocent gaze to the female identity is showcased on pastel and light tones in this appealing print, now available for sale in a limited edition, signed by the artist and designed exclusively for Limited by SOLO. Helnwein is an artist supported by Colección SOLO and its patronage programme.
