Reborn with alterations!
Imagine viewing a photograph so dramatically altered digitally, that the original image is lost in transformed impressionistic colors, or pop- art edges, or post modern abstractions. One might wonder, "How was this art made? Was their ever a photograph?" Like artists throughout art history that have altered what defines the concept of art, Flanagan inspires an examination of the question, "Is traditional style art still valid if it's digital?"
Julie Flanagan's unexpected slant on reinterpreted photos was born directly out of the sudden altering her lifestyle. An unwelcome change that would become a serendipitous consideration of combining the concepts of art and change, as they relate to preconceived notions about art.
She will do this with YOUR photograph too. Cell phone picture can become a 60" wide impressionistic mural "painting" above your couch.
