Pieter Saenredam



Я начинаю с имитации от Olivier Richon. «Intrinsic to Richon’s photography is the allegorical context in which he places his subject, whether animal or inanimate object. Peering towards “Interior of the Buurkerk, Utrecht,” painted by Pieter Jansz. Saenredam in 1644, the monkey, personifying human behavior (and sharing over 90 percent of our DNA), becomes the spectator in Richon’s photograph cleverly entitled, “The Buurkerk at Utrecht, After Pieter Saenredam-Imitation Sapiens Series.” [It's] places the viewer outside the viewing experience, creating a commentary on one’s own affair as the spectator. It also calls into question the issue of the difference in looking – (as monkey does) and seeing – which he is incapable of. This then, like a collection of Russian Dolls, leads to an even larger issue – the difference between “seeing” and “understanding”» (c) Holden Luntz Gallery
