Fragmented fruit still lifeFlowers/fruit/natural objects enhance the idea of reinterpreting an object, as they are usually presented in a way that emphasises their “realness”.In contrast, these images give the still life a sense of “not being a thing”, rather just a collection of squares

Ann Gale (born 1966) is an American figurative painter based in Seattle, Washington. She is known for her portrait paintings, which consist of an accumulation of small color patches expressing the changing light and the shifting position of her models over time. Some of her main influences include Lucian Freud, Alberto Giacometti, and Antonio López García.
Gale works from live models and her process is lengthy. Once she begins to paint, she works for three-hour sessions, and takes from four months to two years to complete a painting. Her pieces possess a strong psychological component due to the amount of time she spends with her models.
Appropriation and Reinterpretation (painting):Inspired by Chuck Close’s brightly coloured, fragmented self-portraits, and Ann Gale’s blurry, smudged-looking portraits.A detailed, complex image can be rendered almost meaningless by fragmenting it to the point where it becomes unrecognisable. This image is transformed from a pot of flowers to blobs of vivid colour which resemble a honeycomb or a stained glass window.

Appropriation and reinterpretation:
Taking everyday objects such as toys, which are usually scattered about randomly, and creating something ordered and structured.
Inspired by Tom Friedman’s stolen ball installation
