Artist Vik Muniz uses thousands of torn scraps of paper to recreate classical, 19th-century paintings from the likes of Van Gogh, Manet, and Degas.
At first glance, I did not like these things, these constructions. Then I focused on the minutiae of the pieces of paper. Some of them had their own personality, their own place in time & space independent of the color/texture role they play in the overall construct. So I see this interplay and creative complexity as interesting. But not necessarily artistic. So I move on. —— DS
