“Correcting” the canon of Western art, one painting at a time
Four of the paintings I made last year for 25% (Rectification) at Tate Liverpool are for sale now. The aim was to highlight the invisibility of disabled people in art with a Duchampian/Dadaist intervention of painting them in to some canonical art works that are held in the Tate collections. The four original works here are: Nu Bleu II by Henri Matisse, Two Women Holding Flowers by Fernand Leger, The Painter and His Pug by William Hogarth, and The Sculptor by Pablo Picasso. Drag the sliders to see the rectified versions and the originals.
All except the Hogarth are unframed, A1 (594 x 841 mm), acrylic on board. The Hogarth is the same size but framed, with a frosted plastic overlay, all painted 2022. Price on application. Contact me if you’re interested in buying one. Prints are also a possibility, let me know if you might be interested.
