"Missing Pictures"

This composition is an investigation of originality and influences as young artists rummage through the last century of figure painting. They evoke a laundry list of other artist-style painting. "A game of Where's Waldo?" "This is like putting Humpty Dumpty back together again." The works are "like" or "as well as" in their mimicking, copying, riffing-on, evoking, and appropriation... masters like Picasso, Leger, and Dubuffet, ...like Kelly, Pantone and Comme des Garsons. Like Schwitter's collages, hers include ...Like a Richard Prince joke painting ...stamped with phrases like "Copy Me"... This is "an analysis of their droppings".
