Inspiring Remakes

I am having a semi-lucid moment when I’m thinking about something else besides my old, rusty uterus.
Ok, it was more like procrastinating on the interwebs versus actual thinking, but I digress…
I was perusing A Cup of Jo’s previous posts and was so inspired by the Remake Project.

These are wonderful submissions of artists recreating old paintings via photographs.  I am inspired and in awe all at the same time, I kept on saying ‘wow’ to myself.  Here are a few of my faves, and I hope they leave you with wonderment and inspiration as well.

Have a great Wednesday.

  1. Wow. The Frida Kahlo ones are my favorite. Her art was so intense. I snuck into the exhibit here in SF (well, I had help from one of the guards, but whatever) and was in awe. I had never seen art so moving. And now after going through what I have, her work speaks to me even more profoundly.

    Here’s to more semi-lucid moments!

    • You know, she has always been a favourite of mine, but I feel a special kinship with her because of that same reason. I’ve got this link that shows my homage to her…

      I hovered over her little paintings at the MoMA for about 30 minutes the first time I ever saw her paintings in the flesh. I remember a lady trying to nudge me to finally move away from it. Heh.

      Let’s have more semi-lucid moments, just so we can get to have cocktails together! Even on whatsapp or skype!

  2. I looooove Los Dos Fridas. Hubby and I went to the Frida Kahlo museum in Mexico City when we were on our honeymoon. She was such a strong woman.

    The J.A.D. Ingres remake just makes me giggle!
