Vik Muniz | Eight Color Spectrum Skate Deck - Orange
PRODUCED AND NUMBERED BY THE SKATEROOM IN 2019
Photographer and mixed-media artist Vik Muniz is best known for repurposing everyday materials for intricate and heavily layered recreations of canonical artworks. Layered appropriation is a consistent theme in Muniz’s work. The digital C-prints that comprise this eight-part series (Repro: Eight Color Spectrum), present a blizzard of art-historical images — all of them culled from books. Combined in layers at stupefying density, they rival in complexity and virtuosity collages made by Hannah Höch, Romare Beardon, Jess Collins and Bruce Conner.
