I love Dawn Siebel's reimagining of classic paintings, and her innovative painting style.
I truly wish there were magic carpets on which it were possible to soar above the landscape and escape for a brief time.
artist bio: Old photographs began appearing in my paintings in 2001 within months of my parents giving me all the old family photographs. I love history and exploring the effects our culture has on our thinking and our lives. Incorporating these photos into my work seemed a perfect way to explore these themes. My story paintings begin with an archival scan of an old photo that is glued and sealed to a wood panel before being transformed with oil paint. The only thing sure to survive is the original face; I may transform everything else. More recently I have incorporated found paint-by-number paintings into my canvases.
