Reflections
Reflections are part of the Forced Collaboration series. Paintings in this series are collaborations with artists from the 16th-20th centuries. I work directly onto original oil paintings which have been purchased at auction. These source paintings are not objets trouvé as they were never lost. Instead they are original works of art that have been diverted; objets detourné.
