Homage, prints, imitation are well known methods. Markus decided to try Xerox copy machine and an instrument of rethinking classical paintings. Markus is the generation of digital instant art. Nowadays artistic statements can be created within a minute. So, Markus was so much inspired by pictures that were created during a long time and gave them his personal touch. He scanned the works this way that Christina (“Christina’s world” by Andrew Wyeth) became even further from her house. James Ensor’s masks become even more scary and Frida Kahlo’s “Broken Column” is more damaged that in the original image.
Moreover, Markus printed several copies of most of the works from catalogues on a simple A4 papers. And placed them on a wall with a tape. Making not only the production but the montage instant as well.
