The Warholian curated an exhibit called Warhol Reimagined: The NewFactory and asked us to individually reinterpret Warhol's soup cans. Artists were assigned corresponding flavors and they were displayed in the same layout as the MoMa.

For my can 'o Campbell's I thought of this can discarded somewhere to start it's very long break-down process inhabited by those things which break down matter. Coincidentally, there's the blatant pun with a can full of worms and that's just what Andy did with his work, open up a can of worms as he unleashed an entire new level of pop art into the world. Warhol was definitely a "hit you over the head" kind of artist with his visuals, so I wanted to pay homage to that while keeping within my realm of curiosity and painting style.

Maybe it was growing up in Reno, but I can't think of a littered can without bullet holes. As a couple more cross-threads, Andy Warhol was shot twice (not fatally) and Dennis Hopper, supposedly in a drug and booze infused night had shot his Mao Zedong painting by Warhol a couple times. Hopper's estate recently sold the painting which Warhol described as a "collaboration" for $302,500. Daaaamn.
