"Grand Theft (Misfit)", 11" x 8" x 7", porcelain and gold leaf, 2013. Scanned from Johann Gottlieb Kirchner's Lion, Meissen ca. 1732
The first piece from our Grand Theft series, using both high and low three-dimensional scanning processes to literally “catch” historic busts and sculptures around the country for retranslation. Similar to how museums allow artists to sketch and paint on site, we are creating our own copies of the original, while letting the photographic process inform the work.
