  • 1. JOHN BALDESSARI Raised Eyebrows / Furrowed Foreheads (Violet & Green Eyebrows), 2008 Three-dimensional archival print, laminated with Lexan, mounted on shaped form with acrylic paint, 57 3/4 x 63 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches The artist’s creative intent was to shed proper conventions of taste and create something new visually from recycled materials (i.e. photographs). Baldessari’s sense of humor and wit is strikingly evident in this unconventional work of art. “Imagery should not be owned.” - John Baldessari
  • 2. CHRISTOPHER KLINGLER I’m Horny, 2014 Vintage photographic print altered with color pencil and mounted on postcard, 4 x 6 inches My response to Baldessari’s recycled / upcycled art style. My intent was to recreate the artist’s sense of style, humor, and wit. There was an intentional double meaning to this piece on my part, and I think it works quite well.
  • 3. MARCEL DUCHAMP Mona Lisa (L.H.O.O.Q.), 1919 Rectified Readymade (reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa altered with pencil), 7 3/4 x 4 1/8 inches Duchamp’s piece relates to Baldessari’s intent on taking a previous image and altering it to a new sensibility / meaning out of context of the original. Duchamp also injects humor, irony, and wit with his adds as does Baldessari. I think Mona looks quite sublime with facial hair.
  • 4. JEFF KOONS Balloon Dog (Orange), 1994-2000 High-chromium stainless steel with transparent color coating, 121 x 143 x 45 inches Jeff Koons is known for his sense of humor in creating larger than life works of art (figuratively & literally) that question the limits of taste, style, and relevance. I chose his dog sculpture because it is so over the top in scale and its visual impact. The luscious color and gleam begs for a pet.
  • 5. CHRISTOPHER KLINGLER Gingerbread Men, 2014 Digital photograph My response to Koon’s whimsical and kitschy style. Photograph of the “Gingerbread Men” (painted cement sculptures) at Clark’s Elioak Farm in Ellicott City, MD. from the now defunct Enchanted Forest. My intent was to recreate the artist’s fun and fantastical style with this photograph of vintage amusement park figures. These saved oversize gingerbread men are on display in a permanent frolic and just want to say hello.
  • 6. ROY LICHTENSTEIN Whaam!, 1963 Magna on two canvas panels, 5 feet 8 inches x 13 feet Lichtenstein’s piece relates to Koon’s intent of using popular cultural icons on a large scale. The typical large scale used in the two artist’s work heightens the subject matter’s emotionality and impact on the viewer. Comic book art had not been previously used in fine art as a subject matter before, which in turn elevated comic art to “high art.”
  • 7. BARBARA KRUGER Untitled (I shop, therefore I am), 1987 Photographic silkscreen on vinyl, 111 x 113 inches Barbara Kruger uses her skills as a designer to create works of art using emotionally charged text (usually a pointed comment on our culture) to invoke responses from the viewers of her work. In addition, Kruger often uses imagery in the background of her work that heightens the meaning of the incorporated text.
  • 8. CHRISTOPHER KLINGLER Walk Run, 2014 Collage comprised of glued paper components, 8 x 10 inches My response to Barbara Kruger’s thought provoking text art. My intent was to create an art piece in Kruger’s style with contradictory wording and background image to provoke the viewer. Are clowns good or bad? Are clowns funny or scary?
  • 9. RICHARD MISRACH Untitled (New Orleans and the Gulf Coast), 2005 Inkjet print, ed. #3/5, printed 2010 Misrach’s piece relates to Kruger’s intent in that it also includes powerful imagery / wording to deepen its emotional impact on the viewer. The photograph which was taken during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, shows the depths of human tragedy and its resulting pathos. The spray painted wording on the house left by the vacated owners reflects Kruger’s style of duality in word usage and meaning.
