EVERYTHING'S COMING UP ALBERS, 2012:
Works by very famous artists were given the "Albers" treatment in photoshop.
Through masking them in the Homage to the Square motif and then averaging
the colors in each band, the art is encrypted into a highly simplified
composition. The "Average" blur filter creates a color based on the average
of all selected colors. This means that all paintings tend towards the
middle and a sort of peaceful decorative quality when treated this way. The
digital images were printed using the techy metal printing process. The
images are printed onto a piece of aluminum and coated with a high gloss
protective coating. This cold and hermetic presentation reinforced the
detachment inherent in the process.
Two Figures in the Grass (for Francis Bacon)
Mao (for Andy Warhol)
Vase with Flowers (for Vincent van Gogh)
Garden of Earthly Delights (for Hieronymus Bosch)
