Why do i like this picture

How about: It is no longer a question of imitation, nor duplication, nor even parody. It is a question of substituting the signs of the real for the real.

NOTES FROM A PAINTER
Hi, I'm Lucy. This blog is to document an aspect of my artist process: image collecting. Here you'll find a glimpse of the digital clutter constantly growing on my laptop, with my attempt to explain why I like what I like.

photo of the winged nike of samothrace that my dad took when we went to the louvre together. i like how she has no head but there are many heads at the bottom. i am working on a 48”x60” painting based on this photo.
