a new angle

This piece was an advertisement for a new exhibition at the Rijks Museum in Amsterdam.

 

The exhibition was for modern artists, in a museum that typically houses more traditional and historical pieces. I took a classic painting (Vermeer’s The Milkmaid) and re-worked it with a modern twist. Instead of pouring milk, she is now taking a picture on her cell phone of the burger she just bought. This perfectly paired the classic nature of the museum with the modern aspect they were bringing in.
