This edition is based on the painting entitled, Helpp made by Julia Wachtel in 2018. By employing a variety of techniques, the print reproduces the painting by mirroring the multiple techniques used in the making of the original work. The left half was printed digitally and renders the image in a continuous tone echoing the oil painting, while the right half of the image is a four-color process screen print split into two discrete areas with different dot patterns and sizes, intentionally rendering the image out of focus as in the original painting. The image is printed in full bleed, giving it the presence of a discrete object.


Wachtel has dedicated her practice to the visual language of mass culture, often focused on the construction of emotion and identity. The imagery in the print depicts the recognizable Looney Tunes character, Wile E. Coyote, holding up a sign that says “HELP”, standing opposite a cartoonish face on a closely cropped torso of a woman wearing a tight tee shirt with two wide eyes and a gaping mouth. The call for help is abstracted from any causal context, destabilizing the possibility for one unique narrative. The artist titled the work Helpp with a second “P” to represent a feeling of helplessness she felt toward the burgeoning post truth landscape.

Julia Wachtel

Julia Wachtel (b. 1956, New York, NY) lives and works in New York and Connecticut. Wachtel’s oil, acrylic, and silkscreen-on-canvas paintings, which are drawn from popular culture, explore the impact of our image-saturated world. A figure of the Pictures Generation artists who emerged in early-1980’s New York, Wachtel’s early work mined posters of movie stars, pin-up girls, political figures, and pop music icons, as well as cartoon figures drawn from commercial greeting cards. Her current work primarily explores the vast space of the internet, a place of constantly replenishing images on a disorienting scale. Wachtel appropriates, juxtaposes, and ultimately distills these images into concentrated paintings, shifting the original logic and proposing an examination of the emotional, political, and aesthetic conditions of an image dominant world. Selected exhibitions include MoMa, New York; The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; The Whitney Museum Of American Art; Bergen Kunsthalle, Norway; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Le Consortium, France; MAMCO, Geneva; Migros Museum, Zurich; Zabludowicz, London; Cleveland Museum of Art; ICA, London; Kunsthalle, Bern. Julia’s work can be found in institutions such as the MoMa, New York; MOCA,Los Angeles; The Whitney Museum of American Art; FRAC Normandie; Saatchi Collection, London; Cleveland Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum; Vanhaerents Art Collection, Brussels; and the Zabludowicz Collection, London.
