Politically Provocative Paintings by Matthew Quick

Posted by & filed under Art & Design, Illustration. 1,389 views

Australian based artist Matthew Quick created these art to make a point. In this series of work the painter dresses up iconic statuary in politically provocative. Those great statues have fallen victim to the clutter, both physical and idealogical, of the 21st century.  One of the painting features George Washington with surveillance cameras attached all over him as if the monument is now just an enabler to Big Brother. Another image shows a warrior statue who’s cloak has been patterned with the modern military ‘camo’ pattern which has infiltrated popular culture.
