Vik Muniz’s recreations of famous paintings—or rather the backs of them—are interesting comments on authenticity. High Museum / Wilfredo LamThe High Museum of Art in Atlanta had a suite of terrific shows that we caught over Memorial Day. Lakker – Tundra

Ok, has anyone tried this technique and if so, comments? by douglasgrendahl Dec 20
