Item description for David Diao: Work 1969-2005 by Michael Corris & David Diao...

Who puts smiley faces over Warhol-esque silkscreens of Bruce Lee in full howling attack? Who superimposes loungey, gentlemanly, portraits of himself over Jackson Pollocks canvases, as if to take blase responsibility for their drips? And who makes a tryptich in which Lee and Pollock face off? While were at it, who puts a black Saint Georges cross on a red flag? David Diao, whose artistic life began thirty years ago very much under the influence of Greenbergian formalism. Diao has since wrestled and mastered twin artistic and racial dragons many times over. Of his MoMa series he says, I stand, a real slanted-eye Asian, desiring however ambivalently to be in the MoMA... in any case I dont mind poking fun at myself at the same time. I am there, smack in the center of the muck.
