Laguna Art Museum




I had ripped an ad out of the paper because I noticed the second painting in it and wanted more. It was for an exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum. Unfortunately, I missed the show, but looked the artist up online: Joe Forkan. (The images are from his website.) He's based a series of paintings of images from one of my all time favorite movies, "The Big Lebowski." Then, he bases his interpretation of them from other famous works of art...I can't think of the right way to describe it. I love what he's done. Paintings are so much better when they are right in front of you. I'm sure he'll have another exhibit soon and hopefully I'll be able to go. If you want to hear his explanation of his work, here's the link:
