In a tribute to Steve Wolfe (1955-2016), many of his works were recently on view in Luhring Augustine in NYC. Hanging on the walls appeared books such as “Andy Warhol” by Rainer Crone and the Beetles album “Hey Jude/Revolution.” Wolfe used techniques such as screen-printing and materials including modeling paste to create replicas. This forces the viewer to determine if the object on view is an original or a masterpiece by Wolfe.
