Striking similarity, or mere coincidence? Check out Judith Linhares work on: http://www.judithlinhares.com and note the lush colors, bold flattened brushstrokes, and somewhat twisted subject matter. Original or derivative? Being in the right place at the right time? You decide! All comments will be sincerely appreciated.Thanks. Jamie
Thanks for your comment regarding Dana Schutz dated September 15, 2007, by Anonymous. I must say that her painting style and use of color is unique and worth further examination.. The subject matter she paints is also unique and personal. Its hard to integrate the values of my art world with hers, but references to Rembrandt, and Ive seen many other artists compared to the masters, is a bit of a stretch. I do however, believe in giving credit where credit is due. I think the world needs more of this.Indeed, I have been recently influenced by her bold and saturated colors. My new paintings will begin to reflect this and I will begin to post them on my site.PS. I like to present these arguments as food for thought. A sort of devils advocate if you will.
