Sherrie Levine


“Instead of taking photographs of trees or nudes, I take photographs of photographs. I choose pictures that manifest the desire that nature and culture provide us with a sense of order and meaning. I appropriate these images to express my own simultaneous longing for the passion of engagement and the sublimity of aloofness. I hope that in my photographs of photographs an uneasy peace will be made between my attraction to the ideals these pictures exemplify and my desire to have no ideas or fetters whatsoever. It is my aspiration that my photographs, which contain their own contradiction, would represent the best of both worlds.” (Sherrie Levine)
