    About The Work

    The photo silkscreen work of artist and physician Carl Tandatnick repeatedly uses a few prototypical biological images in various combinations. The image of the AIDS virus that was sampled from the CDC back in 1993 when it was first identified was chosen to represent the terrible nature of the disease and the sample chosen looks almost like a skull. In the same way that Warhol’s image of Marilyn has become a pop icon, Tandatnick considers this image of the AIDS virus as an antithetical pop icon for the 21st century. This photo collage AIDS Pyramid was first created in 1994 for the Artists Space AIDS forum, and has since been re-purposed into a variety of formats including silkscreen and unstretched canvas.
