Monroe (Warhol print)
"To my little sister, for Cindy sherman" (Cindy Sherman 96)
I found out about this artist today in my H and C class. I like his parodies on contemporary artist photographs, however his versions include subtle changes to the originals with reference to his Chinese heritage. My particular favourite example would be his parody piece of Olympia by Manet, a cute Maneki Neko (Beckoning cat) that sits at the bottom of the nudes feet.

I have abandoned my blog for a while! heres a quick update on what i have been up to in the studio recently. I've asked my models (as well as myself) to pose "American Apparel" style wearing Disney cartoon type clothing, the idea is to turn what is innocent into something sinister and disturbing. Ill be retaking these again using a 35mm film, i think more time needs to be spent on the makeup and scenery/props.
