Paintings by Andy Denzler.
I love how these replicate the feel of a grainy video, it makes everything more menacing.
sweet fruit of Gerhard Richter syndrom
Whoa. These are done so perfectly. The stripes of streaked paint look like a blurred photo but the stripes that aren’t look like nothing close to a photo.

This reminds me of my work, or the work i WANT to produce. thats not a compliment enough, this is fucking amazing stuff. SO trippy, SO beautiful, SO perfect. Love this.
The blurry photos and stripes created a unique texture that make it more interesting more.
Richter paintings with a new twist.
Eventually appropriation will no longer be a viable strategy once the all the artists doing appropriation are re-appropriated re-manipulated re-sampled freshly juxtaposed and interrogated. Let’s all stop stealing from one another and do something original since the lack of originality will become the new myth.
Postmodernism is so stale.
These are great. I got the feeling of free frames from old VHS home videos. One could make the Richter connection but I’d hardly call this appropriation and I definitely wouldn’t call it postmodernism. Too much of a sense of beauty and nostalgia for that.

i can see the richter comparison but i’m sick of people yelling “RIPOFF” every time someone makes something similar to another artist. andy could have just as easily come to this idea on his own and thanks to the wonders of the internet richter is now not the only one known for this type of work. there are billions of people in the world. think about that before you try to drag someone down for “appropriating” something.
that said–BEAUTIFUL WORK, ANDY.
These are fantastic. I love the effect/texture created.
incredible vhs paintings of my dreams.
i love how your brain creates all the tiny details that don’t exist.
hmmmmmmm, first one looks strangely familiar http://www.flickr.com/photos/sprppl/2816985560/lightbox/
like everyone else saw these and immediately thought of Richter buttttt not, these are insane! first is gorgeous
Saw this today
this guy steals other people’s photos and uses them WITHOUT PERMISSION — shoving them off as his own work
This is actually horrific!!!! Ugh feel sick to my stomach seeing the original photos next to his work and to think he gave no credit and now is showing the pieces in galleries and published a book?! DISGUST
Oh man, what a shame. Anyone know the deal whether permission was given to use for the painting or not?
It’s still painted well, that’s for sure.
Another incredible stipling project by French artist Xavier Casalta. This one contains 8 million dots and took 400 hours to ink! Click here to see his previous piece, “Autumn,” if you haven’t already. See more images of “Winter” below.
