Scope Art Fair: Nathan Ritterpusch
Originally uploaded by peteduhon.
An example of the "expressive line" as oppose to the representational line. The distortion here is similiar to the distorted view that you would see when pausing a VHS tape. These pictures are taken from photographs from the 50's. Though the paintings were completed recently. These women are much older now. Thus the title of the painting(which is part of a series of paintings), "old enough to be my mother." The paintings also deal with such issues as the distortion of history and abuse.
