Warhol’s Soup Cans Without the Cans

serlindsipity posted this to /r/pics 3 hours ago.  It is Andy Warhol’s soup cans without the soup cans.  I love this kind of deconstruction.  For juxtaposition, here is Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans.

Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans

Warhol once said, “I should have just done the Campbell’s Soups and kept on doing them … because everybody only does one painting anyway.

I hope that serlindsipity disagrees with Warhol on that point.  I would love to see more from this artist.

EDIT:  Turns out serlindsipity has a kickstarter, where she is hoping to raise money to get studio equipment to expand this series into 32 pictures.  I guess she does agree with Warhol after all.  I’m not sure if I should be happy that she’s working on more cans or sad that she’s not doing something new.  Either way, it looks like a much better kickstarter than many I’ve seen.  This isn’t like a videogame kickstarter where you can’t donate without questioning the sanity of trying to make the next GTA V with $50,000 and happy thoughts.  If she gets the money I believe this project will be a big hit.
