  • Luisi

    I love it

    • Ivan Noel

      This work is shameful, blatant plagiarism, down to the details: ideas, concept, themes and even texts.
      Let’s keep Art clean like Sports are not, and reject this fraudulent artist.

      For anyone with doubts, do a simple Google search on on the renowned French Photographer ‘Bernard Faucon ecritures’, work created 25 years ago.

  • Kswat88

    Such a good job.
    I love her works with all my heart

  • Joemar Espinosa

    beautiful and relevant~

  • does she have a portfolio online? love her work

    • the artnet link is the only one i’ve found

  • Emma

  • Briannapacheco27

    the bosss love dis fucken shit

  • Julia Brenard

    is there anyway to buy prints of these?

  • I love Barbara Kruger’s work but their questioning always feels very overwhelming and aggressive.  These images question in a quiet and measured way – peacefully – and in that peaceful moment I start to feel like I might be able to answer.  Love these.

    • lepetitfaon

      EXACTLY! I love the scale of these, perfect, not overwhelming at all, since its less abrasive I think it leads to more reflection about the piece and the text, love

    Ms. Lee (the so-called artist above)

    There is ‘inspiration’, which all artists know about, and there is outright plagiarism.

    Your work, in the ‘neon light’ theme, Ms.Lee, is outright plagiarism, and you should be ashamed to release it as your own work.

    You also don’t even try to disguise it, and go so far as to copy the exact texts used by the original creator of this Art.

    Do you think people are so uncultured to not know about the famous works by the French renewed photographer Bernard Faucon?

    I have contacted Mr Faucon who has seen your work and feels outrage by it, and intends to act upon it.

    You are not an artist but a fraud. As you will see, I am a well-known film director, and I do not take kindly to this kind of deception. I fully intend to make this public from now on, wherever you try to pass your work as ‘Art’.

    Anyone with any doubt, do a simple Google search for ‘Bernard Faucon scriptures’: a work produced 25 years ago – the exact same photographic concept with, in places, the exact same texts, on the same themes. This is not just inspiration, way beyond ‘derivative’, but a straight theft of an idea and artistic concept, down to the details. This is professionally and ethically unacceptable.
