The late American artist and influential Pop Art pioneer, Tom Wesselmann, is the subject of a new exhibition at Gagosian’s Beverly Hills gallery space in Los Angeles, California. Entitled “Still Lifes, Standing Still Lifes, and Bedroom Paintings,” the institution is currently spotlighting archival works from 1963 to 1983 such as large-scale canvases that are shaped to the outline of the everyday objects they portray. Moreover, assemblage pieces crafted using shifting panels of varying gadgets are on display at the space. Throughout his extensive career, Wesselmann specialized in creating collages that incorporated found materials such as sketches and parts of advertisements he collected in the New York City subway, as per Gagosian.

View the photos above and head over to Gagosian’s official website to learn more. “Still Lifes, Standing Still Lifes, and Bedroom Paintings” is on view until August 24. In other art stories, MoMA is spotlighting Yugoslavian Modernist architecture in an exhibition called “Toward a Concrete Utopia.”
