my mind museum
Art that I love. Two posts a day, linked by theme, subject matter, color. There's an emphasis on fine art, especially painting, but I also feature graphic design, illustration, sculpture, fashion, and architecture as the mood strikes me.

Untitled (President: 4) - Sherrie Levine, 1979
From the Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History:

This work belongs to Levine’sPresidentsseries—silhouettes of Washington, Lincoln, and Kennedy cut from magazine pages showing mothers with children, fashion models, and other stock images of women. The specter of commodification and exchange value, signified in the penny profile of Lincoln, lurks around the edges of the model’s image, revealing the mechanisms of seduction and desire hidden beneath the advertisement’s effects. Her treatment allows the advertisement to incriminate itself, a cool subversion of media imagery that characterizes much artistic production in the 1980s.
