Ed Paschke

Known for his brash, sometimes disturbing depictions of figures from the social margins and pop culture icons, Ed Paschke’s (1939 – 2004) works are immediately recognizable for their jarring juxtapositions, clashing neon colors, and bold, repeating patterns. Paschke is often associated with the Chicago imagists; however, his work is unique amongst this group for his incorporation of photorealist elements culled from television and mass media sources, a technique he mastered with the aid of an opaque projector.
