'Vulgar Lives' includes 38 paintings and a series of preparatory drawings created between 1960 and 2014 by legendary Pop artist Rosalyn Drexler (born 1926). A novelist, Obie-winning playwright, sculptor, wrestler, and film and television writer, Drexler is a one-of-a-kind polymath whose 1960s paintings have enjoyed a recent resurgence. Using vibrant, often primary colors, the artist creates collage-paintings incorporating societal or media imagery with her own fantastical twist; figures from Western cultural history such as Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and the Beatles are a few of her iconic subjects.
