Last year, members of our art group were asked to contribute to an exhibition which was to provide a backdrop and conversation pieces for a film about people’s reactions to art. I used this as an excuse to spend some time looking hard at paintings by Lucian Freud.
I’m not sure what the responses were to the exhibition as I have not seen the resulting film, but I thought I’d recreate my small section of it here, as the drawings I made will otherwise languish in my plan chest, now that the exhibition is long past.
Originality – self-expression – inspiration – homage – imitation – plagiarism
What’s the difference? Does it matter?
Two are my charcoal copies of Lucian Freud paintings,
one is a copy of my own painting (original painted from life)
and one is drawn from life.
Which is which? Does it matter?
