Recently transplanted to Chicago from California, Warnick comes from an emerging third generation of West Coast conceptual artists, whose line extends from the first California icons like John Baldessari to mid-career artists such as Jorge Pardo, Stephen Prina, and Christopher Williams, who all mentored Warnick and his friends at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Warnick's work epitomizes many of the concerns of this most recently formed group; there is a kind of playful intertextuality, a fearless blend of sources and media, and a willingness to use the dematerialized stuff of human interaction as art material.
