If you've ever taken a college art class, you know one of the drills is that the instructor cleans out the art closet and makes an arrangement of all kinds of junk that has collected over the years. Usually this includes an assortment of empty wine bottles, some plaster body parts, fake produce, ugly lamps, rusty objects and who-knows-what else. We worked on this for days.
I visited the Getty Center this summer with my family and experienced amazing art. After receiving an assignment to create a painting in the style of a "famous" artist, I chose Cezanne's "Still Life With Apples" and made this twenty-first century American kitchen adaptation.
