Quadrant Mickey Mouse/Myths

by Andy Warhol (1981)

Warhol’s work focused on the 20th century phenomenon of mass media, and the constant stream of images and symbols that are used to define a culture. During his life, Warhol strived for, attained, and captured the idea of celebrity, most notably through his silkscreen prints of celebrities and super market products.

Matthew 15:1-9

Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands before they eat.” He answered them, “And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? For God said, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘whoever speaks evil of father or mother must surely die.’ But you say that whoever tells father or mother, ‘Whatever support you might have had from me is given to God,’ then that person need not honor the father. So, for the sake of your tradition, you make void the word of God. You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied rightly about you when he said:

‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me;
in vain do they worship me,
teaching human precepts as doctrines.’”
