classically cheapened? no, recreated.

Ever wondered what body parts Van Gogh would have
(digitally) cut off if he knew Photoshop?

Or all the gadgets and gizmos Da Vinci would have

juiced out if only he knew AutoCAD?

In the spirit of Post-Modernism that everything that
can be done has been done already, why don't we run
with what has already been created & have a little fun?

(gangstuhs. stolen shopping carts & all.)

These once idyllic scenes, now sabotaged by modern day
commentary on pollution & just the dirty rats that we are.
Recreated in oil, these "rude" additions... done by none other than

Banksy (i love you) himself.

Each of these pieces were exhibits at a gallery in Britain...
one of which was also infested with rats-- fitting.

Photography is probably one of the most altered elements
in the field of art and design.
Depictions with this media is only logical.

Re-creating paintings with photography.
Some of them trying hard to stick to the original plan
but no harm is done putting some plastic on each other to
make nipple pinching less awkward and a little more comedic.

Attack of the Star Wars.
(lezz be real, we all saw this one coming.)

In the summer of ’06, I bought several kilograms of peas,
and sat there quietly for two days peeling them,
before stringing them on a wire and turning them into a skirt, a top, a headdress and a magic wand.
I used a remote control to take a photo of myself in them, and named it Pea Beauty Pageant.
That was my first work of vegetable art.
In the two years that followed, I often dressed up as a housewife,
leisurely strolling to the market in a serious search for fun.
I would often pace in front of the vegetable stalls, picking things up,
thinking and putting them back, trying to figure out which positions made them more interesting.
The different types, shapes and colors of the vegetables, with a bit of rearranging,
can make for a rich source of imagery.
Fresh, withered, rotting, dried, pickled, boiled, fried, they all come out different.
I no longer needed a model, as they all became actors and even props."
