Mel Ramos and Tom Wesslemann, “A Virtual Exhibition” at Heather James Fine Art on El Paseo in Palm Desert

Explore the frisky and sunny world of Mel Ramos and Tom Wesselmann. Part of the Pop Art movement emerging in the 1960s just as Abstract Expressionism became dominant, Mel Ramos and Tom Wesselmann offered a brighter and buoyant alternative. Ramos is best known for his paintings of superheroes and female nudes juxtaposed with pop culture imagery while Wesselman’s work references classical nudes juxtaposed with modern objects. In the works in the exhibition, the visual pleasure of classic consumer goods, upbeat colors and tantalizing figuration produce a fantasy to delight the viewer.
