Galeri Pop Art Donald Fisher

Kalau lagi di undang ke kantor pusat Gap Inc. di San Francisco, saya selalu menyempatkan diri berkunjung ke galeri pribadi Donald Fisher (75) pendiri perusahaan ini. Galeri yang sudah seperti museum ini tidak dibuka untuk umum, namun karyawan Gap diberikan keleluasan untuk menikmati hasil karya yang didominasi oleh seniman Pop Art-nya Amerika. Don Fisher sebagaimana ia dikenal merupakan salah satu kolektor seni terkemuka di Amerika yang semua benda seninya ditaksir bernilai 1 milyar dolar. Selain ditempatkan di galeri, koleksinya banyak bertebaran di kantor Gap yang berlokasi di 2 Folsom Street berdekatan dengan jembatan Bay Bridge.

Menikmati koleksi Pop Art di galeri ini seperti kembali menyaksikan tonggak sejarah perkembangan genre seni ini yang  berkibar di era 60an di Amerika. Sebenarnya Pop Art bukanlah seni yang sulit dipahami sebagaimana lukisan abstrak. Ide2 karya pop art banyak  diambil dari media iklan, komik, hingga selebriti. Ini beberapa koleksi yang saya lihat :

Ini salah satu karya legendaris dari Andy Warhol, seniman yang menggambar Marilyn Monroe dalam empat warna yang nge-jreng. Tiga karya dari Andy Warhol : Jackie Onasis, Triple Elvis serta Brillo.

 

Enjoy.🙂

    I have always love Lichtenstein and Warhol’s works. Never get around to see the original ones though. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m blessed Andie, they are rare collection and not many people can see the pieces. I was overwhelmed standing in front of Pop Art maspetpieces.

    I have always loved this kind of retro art, the baby boomers choice of art. It’s lovely and it’s a shame it’s not open for public. so to second andie, thanks a lot for sharing.🙂

    Thanks for dropping by Rima. People is the US sharing the same concerns, however in 2011, Don Fisher will open his collection to public in newly constructed museum located in Presidio area, San francisco. It will be a must visit list for Pop Arts fans like all of us. Best.

    Indonesia’s art movement is sort of slow.. We don’t get many exhibitions from famous artists (maybe they worry the artworks will be stolen? lol)I remember when I used to be in Melbourne I’d frequent art galleries and there were no entry charge so it was a free, educating experience!

    I think my best artistic experience would be seeing the works of Impressionist artists with my own eyes – WOW.

    Exactly similar Therry, my encounter with many art forms was in fact during my frequent travel to US. There are so many free galleries and art classes there, free performances. Amazing. Warhol is my favorite artist, and yes, the feeling was sensational when I was seeing with my very own eyes.
