Everything I make is a Picture of a Picture in some respect. Pictures of Pictures have always interested me. They are a little bit like a room of mirrors in how they operate. Letinsky has long done a cool and calculated type of still life of mostly food and objects in white rooms the best ones being when she introduces subtle shifts in the color of her lighting.
In this series she changes her game and photographs cut out images of magazines in her minimalist style. With this academic body of work she is a bit more like a postmodern Vermeer with a camera. Want to see more artists who use mass media images in their work? It all started with Andy Warhol and the legions of artists that followed in his footsteps.
