Now available from Angel City Press: CORITA KENT. ART AND SOUL. THE BIOGRAPHY.
Sister Corita became a singularly important but under-recognized California artist. Her silkscreens evolved to represent a subversive homage to mass media, giving new meaning to the slogans and marketing manipulations of consumer culture. With a unique calligraphic style and a playful spirit, Corita's constructions—or deconstructions—of word and image shook up an art establishment that didn't quite know what to do with a nun's bold interpretation of her society. Warhol inspired her, but she found her own voice.
