Artist Response | Midterm
The artist whose style interested me was Lillian Schwartz. A famous piece of hers is titled, Mono/Leo, 1987. This work is a digitally altered image of Leonardo's Mona Lisa combined with a portrait of Leonardo. She produced this work by scanning these images into the computer and altering them in a photo editor. I was interested in this work because it is similar to everyday image altering with Photoshop. It shows that almost anyone who knows how to use an image editor can make art.
