Critical Review

Shadows II (F. & S. II.214) is one of six screen prints in Warhol’s Shadows II portfolio. The portfolio is part of a wider project, the Shadows project, which developed out of a collection of 102 paintings Warhol made in 1978, all of which derived from the shadowy patterns from Warhol’s lamp. The artist was fascinated by the interaction between light and darkness and the abstract shapes that resulted  from this ever-changing relationship.

The Shadows II portfolio was published in collaboration with Warhol’s good friend and talented printer, Rupert Jasen Smith. The series of paintings were also exhibited in the Heiner Friedrich gallery in New York City where the artist resided. Made in the last decade of Warhol’s artistic career, this collection of artworks marks a turning point in the artist’s life in which he started experimenting with abstraction and moving away from his classical Pop Art style.
