Artist Travels To Scenic Locations Only To Paint The Pattern of His Own Shirt

Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert offer a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting, a humorous series of photographs that show artist going to various scenic locations just to paint his own shirt. They started this project in 2009 and it’s still ongoing.

    The mark of an über-douche.

    Another hipster gimmick for his 15 seconds of fame.

    15 seconds is more than zero seconds.

    I’m a plein air painter, and I think this is hysterical

    A beautiful complex piece. The artist is drawing us so far into the work that we forget we are observing through a photograph. And then a beautiful commentry on arts subjectivity. Are we painted ourselves, or the subject.
    Then the subtle commentry about narcissistic vision. Being in beauty but stick our own head, our own appearance.

    Well done

    This is beautiful. I love it. I also love his choice of clothes. Painting did not die with Lucian Freud after all. Sense of humour did not die with Richard Nixon as well.

    Iconic, self-reflexive, intelligent, funny, great art. That’s how it’s done. Thankyou!

    Wherever you go, there you are. Both so true, and the stuff of nightmares; painting oneself into one’s pictures, over and over again, trapped in an endless loop. Oh, the horror.

    Brilliant

  23. Anon May 2, 2019

    Surely it’s all about dialectical tension and the integrity of the canvas

    I would bet money that most of the critical commentators are also people who take a million selfies when they’re on vacation. They don’t realize that they’re being trolled right now.

    I actually really like these! I think the photos are cute and a nice breathe of fresh air vs. the other 8 million landscape paintings we find hoarded in antique stores.
