    I love how these replicate the feel of a grainy video, it makes everything more menacing.

    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.

    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.

    this guy steals other people’s photos and uses them WITHOUT PERMISSION — shoving them off as his own work


    • lapetitefaon

      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

  • james

    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.

“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
