Sophie Matisse: Be Back in 5 Minutes and Zebra Stripe Paintings
This New York City artist has created paintings that combine a conceptual point of view with historically acknowledged masterpieces from the art of painting. The "Be Back in 5 Minutes" paintings use subtraction as the conceptual device through the elimination of the people and animals from the original compositions, while the "Zebra Stripe" paintings make use of addition by the confluence of two painted realities and the reintroduction of people and animals in the copied museum art. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
