Artist Travels to Scenic Locations Only to Paint the Pattern of His Own Shirt

schubert5

Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert offer a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting. In their collaboration, Und im Sommer tu ich malen (“And in the Summer, I do paint”), Schubert photographs in der Beek at various locations famously captured by artists like Cézanne and Monet. However, rather than focusing on the scenic landscape around him, in der Beek is seen painting the pattern of his shirt.

As in der Beek explains his thought process: “Confronted with the immenseness of the mountains and the littleness of my canvasses, I decided to paint what’s nearest to me instead of what’s afield and giant.” More images from the ongoing photographic series below!

    • ya i think the joke is almost over-shadowing how great the images are – i especially love the red plaid one in the forest, one of the wider shots
