Virgin and Child after Jean Fouquet

July 4, 2008

Jean Fouquet’s Madonna is one of the most interesting paintings I’ve ever seen; the blue and red cherubs and the alabaster skin create such a juxtaposition. For me the remix transforms Madonna from a demure young girl into a sly goddess.
I hope you like it…

Madonna after Andrea Mantegne

July 1, 2008

Like so many of his contemporaries, Mantegna explored similar religious themes in their work. Portraits of the Madonna are one of the most common, with many artists creating multiple works of her and the baby Jesus.

Hans Grien was a student of Durer who clearly had a fascination with death, including the leering skeletal figure depicted in this piece in a number of his works. He was also extremely interested in witches and made [...]

Birth of Venus after Sandro Botticelli

June 22, 2008

The Birth of Venus was the third remix of the series, and was created at a time when I was trying to work some subtlety into the textures, maintaining the piece’s essence as much as possible. I find Botticelli’s work, like that of his Italian Renaissance contemporaries, exquisite. The incredible painterly style of [...]
