Carl Fudge

British, b. 1962

Carl Fudge was a visiting artist to The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) during the winter of 2005-06.  His work always begins with another work of art that he transforms using a computer.  In this instance, he was working from Andy Warhol’s series of “Camouflage” paintings.  Before coming to RISD for his first visit in November 2005, Fudge had Megan Foster (RIDS MFA 2000) produce Rubylith stencils from a computer-generated print-out.  Once the stencils were transferred to the printing screens (one for each color), Fudge primarily focused on experimenting with many color combinations.  He returned to RISD after the first of the year to narrow his selection to three images and then worked with assistants to print the editions.  “Both the practical and aesthetic idea of ‘camouflage’ have long fascinated me.  The duplicity, history, and even implicit  psychology of ‘cover’ are generative subjects for my painting.  I have great admirations for Warhol’s innovative use of silkscreen in painting.”
