Art History Memory Boxes

'Art History Memory Boxes' is another Art About Art image of mine. It is a composite work utilising a number of artworks that reference The Nude in Art and the work of the Dutch 17C artist Johannes Vermeer. All of the separate images that make up this multi layered work have gone through significant changes from their original compositions. In so doing their meaning/narrative has changed.

The idea of putting a number of images in transparent boxes relates to the idea of capturing slices of time and memories. A different way of exhibiting artworks in museums or galleries in some futuristic way perhaps.

The red marble provides a focal point and is also a kind of signature of mine.
