Brazilian Modern Abstract Expressionist Chromogenic Print, Vik Muniz

$110,000

About

The Absinthe Drinker, after Edgar Degas (Pictures of Magazines 2) 2011 Edition 4/6 Vik Muniz's artwork has a grand accessibility, in a modern day Warholian manner, and through an extensive visual language touches the viewers collective memory.The fascination and exploration of the language lies at the foundation of his work and is entrenched with dualities and his own personal influences. The artists blue collar upbringing in Sao Paolo interwoven with his path to the United States and love of art history add complexity to the creation of the images, Conceptually and practically the dichotomies and tension are evident through the ever changing , democratic selection of materials where all sources are equal. Puzzles, dirt, pigment, wire, magazines, spaghetti, caviar, chocolate, and diamonds are only a few of the materials he has used in his oeuvre., but the final product is consistent and always taken through the lens of the camera. Muniz's choice to use photograph is deliberate to achieve the optical illusions and layering he desires. ..... photography has the power of rendering visual input not as the eye perceives it, but as the brain develops it-as a visual intellectual product.
