    About The Work

    Best known as one of the “Young British Artists” that gained notoriety in the 1990s, Gavin Turk’s work deals with issues of identity, authorship and authenticity. Like many of his YBA counterparts, Turk challenges the notion of “the artist’s hand,” drawing on art-historical motifs—like Duchamp’s ready-mades—and unique materials in his highly conceptual work. Frequently interjecting his own name or image into his work, in addition to collected cultural reference, one of Turk’s most recognizable pieces is Pop, 1993, in which the artist created a realistic wax figure of himself as punk icon Sid Vicious—posed as Andy Warhol’s Elvis. In this gold leaf silkscreen work, Double Gold Pop Gun, Turk presents a cropped image of the doubled gun from the two-dimensional rendition of his infamous Pop piece.
