Andy Warhol explored the relationship between reality and fiction in more ways than one. Using various artistic mediums and experimental methods of production, he found forms of representation for this abstract relationship between the genuine and fake in the images of celebrity. Add to this Warhol’s practical effacement of art as sincere individual practice—thanks to the introduction of The Factory and mass-produced art—and you have a compounded critique of the true, false, and their enigmatic meaning, all wrapped up in an image of Presley the gunslinger.
