I am...
Born outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1982, artist Charles Lutz attended the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York where he began dealing with the themes of commerce, luxury, and the art world at large. Soon after Lutz began his collaborative relationship with menswear designer Yoko Devereaux, working on projects for Surface Magazine, Time Out New York, and Terminal 5. Lutz has also worked for such artists as Jeff Koons and McDermott and McGough. In early 2007 Lutz began the series “Denial and Acceptance” which was based on a series of 12 replicated Andy Warhol Self Portraits that were formally sent to the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board to have intentionally denied, stamped, and catalogued. Therefore creating officially denied Warhol self-portraits authored by artist Charles Lutz. From these works, a body of over 400 works were created that will be cataloged on the artist’s website for the series, warholdenied.com. Lutz is currently working on an ambitious series of 15 round paintings that critique the current art culture, through the uses of contemporary photographs, 19th century decorative arts motifs, as well as political cartoons of that period. The artist currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
About my artwork
The Denial and Acceptance series by Charles Lutz is a commentary on the easily reproducible aspect of Warhol’s work and the dilemmas that this incurs. The series forces the viewer to look at works that are identical copies of Warhol’s work and ask themselves amongst other things, is this art? What is art? What is authorship? Is it possible to make conceptual art from something that was already considered art in another context? When looking at Warhol’s work, largely we are looking at reproductions of existing images that have been intended for mass-reproduction and consumption. Warhol and the pop art movement took the everyday banal images of a culture and raised them to the level of fine art. In our current culture these images have come full circle. Warhol’s Marilyn, Campbell’s soup cans, and Elvis, appear on clothing, bags, snowboards, and countless other products as mere decoration. The series Denial and Acceptance brings “Warhol’s work” back into the realm of high art, while also challenging authenticity issues and questioning the artist’s original intent.
Artists I like
Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Banksy, Richard Prince, Richard Phillips, Tito Fuente

Hello Charles, You may certainly include me as a friend
I assume it is pretty cool in Brooklyn at the moment in the sense of chilly...There is a big Warhol show in Brisbane at the moment but I am Distance Denied, a thousand miles away down south.

Thanks for your request, Charles. I think your work is really interesting and your approach is certainly original.

I suppose you must have liked what you´ve seen of my work, but I´d appreciate it if you could visit my site and tell me what you think of my art.

Have you watched 'Who gets to call it art?'. A cool documentary about art curator Henry Geldzahler .. also gives you a rare glimpse into warhol's life, and other artists of the time. I recommend.
