Sotheby’s S|2 presents Raymond Pettibon: Four Decades, an exhibition in the New York gallery space featuring Pettibon’s iconic works on paper. The unique world of Raymond Pettibon is born out of popular culture, the counterculture in its multiple forms, politics, sports, voyeurism, religion, nostalgia and a sense of failed heroic identity. Although on the surface Pettibon’s work may seem pessimistic or even nihilistic, there is a feeling that through the darkness a new profound understanding of self can be discovered, and with that a glorious truth. The works set forth in Raymond Pettibon: Four Decades demonstrate the ways in which Pettibon has stepped out into the world of contemporary art and challenged our perceptions of what our real identity might be, for better or worse. Raymond Pettibon: Four Decades opens in advance of the artist’s major exhibition Raymond: Pettibon: A Pen of All Work at the New Museum, on view from February 8 – April 9, 2017.
