Close to 100 artworks, using all median types... watercolor, gouache, acrylic, leather, wood, ready-made items, recycled debris to collage. Each work is titled and created in the style of a (usually) deceased artist, well-known or maybe not, who during their lifetime lived and suffered with ongoing tragic events that often consumed them. Personal experiences of family members, loved ones, neighbors or themselves suffering from chronic illness, nervous breakdowns, mental illness, violent accidents or deaths, genocides, starvation, war zones… events that shaped their life, driven to make art, even if the style did not always appeal to the masses. 


This very vibrant, multi textured exhibition invites you to see the styles of Modigliani, Lautrec, Van Gogh, Dali, Miller, Picasso, Pollock, Kahlo, Munch, von Hagen, Demuth, Matisse, Duchamp, Munch, Monet, Sher-gil, Rothko, O'Keefe, Kusama, Cassandre, de Goya, Chin, Claudel. Bacon, Johnson, Arosenius and many more.
