In Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art, I often wondered if the museum goers dressed specifically for the occasion!
It all started with a room-sized painting of blue plaid. As I wondered who would want a huge painting of a piece of plaid fabric I glanced up and there were three guys around me wearing variations of blue plaid. It was very surreal!
I snapped some shots of two of them and chased after the third who was leaving that gallery. Unfortunately the third ‘Blue Plaid Man’ got caught up in the embrace of a girlfriend and I didn’t have the guts to drag him back into the gallery. So here are only two ‘Blue Plaid Men’ photoshopped into the painting.
My version of a Sol LeWitt painting of vivid stripes. I was tempted to make this lady’s striped sweater in the same colours as the painting (and I still might)… My ‘Sketchy Mikey’ photo next to a piece of art that inspired it.
Sketchy Mikey overlaid on the painting.My ‘Matching Jacket’ continues the Dutch tradition of dressing to match the art in Den Haag’s Escher Museum.
