Llyn Foulkes was born in 1934 in Yakima, Washington. He studied music and art at Central Washington College of Education, Ellensburg, until 1954, when he was drafted into the U.S. Army and served two years in postwar Germany. In 1957 he moved to Los Angeles to attend the Chouinard Art Institute until 1959. Although extremely varied, Foulkes’s practice is grounded in painting, often exploring themes of human cruelty and manipulation. His resistance to art’s commodification has led to sudden breaks in style, including the adoption of techniques such as assemblage, mixed media, and layering in relief.

In one group of early works, which are reminiscent of Pop art, Foulkes subverts the iconography of postcards and vintage landscape photographs in order to point at the failure of the American dream that Los Angeles once symbolized. In the late 1960s, Foulkes began using paint-soaked rags as a tool for applying and wiping away surface material in paintings such as Sleeping Rock (1969). Unnerved by the acclaim these works received and fearing his work had become formulaic, Foulkes then created a series of antiestablishment portraits with disfigured or obscured faces, such as Money in the Bank (1977).

In the early 1980s, Foulkes’s work underwent another metamorphosis as he began to apply fabric to the surfaces of his paintings, creating an illusion of depth. This mode of production begins with O’Pablo (1983), a tableau featuring the corpse of a murdered art critic, and also characterizes one of his most renowned pieces, Pop(1985–90), in which he portrays himself as a father transfixed by a television while his son reads the pledge of the Mickey Mouse Club. A recurrent image throughout his oeuvre, Mickey Mouse serves as a symbol of corporate brainwashing: In But I Thought Art Was Special (Mickey and Me) (1995), the cartoon character is a tumor on Foulkes’s brain. Another seminal tableau, The Lost Frontier (1997–2005) shows a landfill that spills across a classic Western landscape, with a plastic Mickey Mouse head set upon the body of a frontierswoman in a cotton dress.

Foulkes was awarded the prize for painting at the 1967 Paris Biennial. In 1977 he was the recipient of a Solomon R. Guggenheim Fellowship. He was granted the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in 2008, and received the Artists’ Legacy Foundation Award the following year. His work has been the subject of solo presentations at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (1978); Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art (1984); Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati (1995); Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach (1995); and other venues. He was the subject of a major traveling retrospective originating at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and traveling to the New Museum, New York, and Museum Kurhaus Kleve, Germany (2013–14). His group shows include those at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1974, 1977, 1990, 2010); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (1976, 2004); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (1980, 2006); and Museum of Modern Art, New York (2001, 2002). He also participated in the Venice Biennale (2011) and Documenta, Kassel, Germany (2012). Foulkes lives and works in Los Angeles.
