Calm now...

More work, less time, more rushing, a new week… there should be more here than some posts about the struggle of struggle…
For now, just a little idea of little (tiny really) pencil drawings of some fragments of favorite paintings… thought about taking the features of the portrayed and redrawing them to look as if they were our contemporaries… or at least characters from the last century… this might be interesting as it is not really a new idea… it would be just interesting to see how much of the human aspect depends on such silly accessories as expression, hairstyle and makeup…
The example below is an overlay of such a small pencil drawing over the source painting from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam…
Oh well… just a very early thought… first drawing… I know, the hair looks like a fur hat… but it is just an idea, a sketch… a first jot… just thinking…
(oh, and I would not overlay the drawings back onto the source like in the image below. I would like to have them completely separate. They should be connected only by those feeling familiar with the original paintings… it should be like looking at family members… relatives, distant ones… still related… like that… not copies, just genetic rethinking of original features from other sources…)


beautiful! i love the overlay!
it really makes me think about 'the classics' in a whole new way...

interesting... it reminds me of a series someone [can't recall who at the moment] did where he had females who resembled women in famous paintings and put them in the same settings as the paintings and photographed them.

Oh Christ.
Emma Thompson meets Botticelli?

If one feels compelled to compare Witold's artwork to a buncha' f@&&)ts can they at least be talented f@&&)ts?
