lol forgot i had a tumblr account ha ha ha

Here is a good example of creating a modern take of an old painting. My friends Jori and Kiley worked together on this image. Its a really great image!! They put their own twist on it, the girl is from a sorority and I think the guy is as well which if you think about it conceptually makes sense. The social politics, significance of wealth, social restraint and behaviors play a role in both court at the time of the painting and that of sororities and fraternities.

here is their website if you are interested:

here are some interesting images of David Lachapelle’s that are more on the grotesque side. They seem to be eye candy in a different way than his other images.

here is a link to information about the artist Yasumasa Morimura.

In here it mentions his process of recreation and how painstaking it is to recreate a painting with props and a set. I just wanted to make sure everyone understood how much time he has spent and how he used multiple mediums, not just computer manipulations, to construct his pieces to then photograph.
