Star Wars Mashed Up With Classic Art

1
An artist has given classic paintings new hope – by adding Star Wars elements into the famous works. David Hamilton, 50, put his unique twist on paintings by the likes of Monet, Munch, Rembrandt and Van Gogh. The creative artist, from Livingston, Scotland, came up with the idea while flicking through a book of classic paintings. As a Star Wars fanatic he thought to himself how funny it would be funny to see a Stormtrooper incorporated into one of the works. Here: Rembrandt, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp.

“EVERYONE’S A CRITIC” – Vintage Photographs Hijacked by Artist David Lyle

Old_Photographs_Hijacked_by_Artist_David_Lyle_2015_01

Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to present EVERYONE’S A CRITIC, a new body of work by artist David Lyle. Working from found vintage and vernacular photographs, Lyle seamlessly composes works that harken back to 1950’s and 1960’s America – not as they were, but skewed and reimagined by the artist. In EVERYONE’S A CRITIC, we see how Lyle’s methodology combined with his acerbic wit creates an altered reality rife with cynicism and bursting with humor. Lyle is impeccably faithful to the vintage photographs that inspire his work – until a point, in which he instills a cultural reference so familiar, yet iconoclastic, as to leave the viewer wincing, laughing, or really thinking — often it is all three.
