Michael Borremans has said " A Painting is an object with a complex character, and because of the historical dimension it is impossible to treat it impartially. In our reality, a portrayal is also always a reproduction. Jean Baudrillard said that painting had become pointless because we live in a world in which paintings are simply reproduced.Yet they are paintings that are among the most widely reproduced pictures. It makes you think." Well we at UnMasterclass are not adverse to thinking and have come to the conclusion that maybe painting is pointless, so if that is the case then we might as well paint other peoples paintings, which is surely more pointless than painting on it's own?
Anyway if you have some time to kill and you cannot pop along to Central park to drop into the Metropolitan Museum of art then pop along to see a reproduction of a painting of reproduction of painting here http://vimeo.com/20932101
