‘Legitimate Fakes’

Chapter I – an original fake

When I paint in the style of one of the greats… Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh… I am not simply creating a copy or pale imitation of the original. Just as an actor immerses himself into a character, I climb into the minds and lives of each artist. I adopt their techniques and search for the inspiration behind each great artist’s view of the world. Then, and only then, do I start to paint a ‘Legitimate Fake’.

Chapter II – a new view

The gift of time allows me the opportunity to paint the unwritten chapter in an artist’s life. It is my privilege to return to the places they loved and explore the angles that remain uncovered or to create the next chapter in a still life.”
