Art History as Memory Devices

  • Oil on Canvas, Found Objects // 2011
  • A series of paintings that retell a personal memory though abstract reproduction of famous art history paintings. I followed the color palette horizontally along the famous painting and painted the visual timeline of the work to follow the idea of a personal timeline from the memory.
