A Fashion Portrait Homage to Picasso

March 6, 2013 | Eugene Reznik

Spanish artist Eugenio Recuenco’s fashion portrait series as homage-to-Picasso is impressive. The fragmented composite frames and prop-styling work to emulate some of the 20th century master’s most famous cubist paintings in a tasteful, restrained, more-than-straightforward-imitative manner. They may not have the conceptual rigor of Addie Wagenknecht and Pablo Garcia’s Webcam Venus, the populist appeal of Hillary Smith’s Pop Reinterpretation or the low-blow humor of Cheyne Gallarde’s Twinsies, but they’re pretty awesome.
