From artist Joe Forkan’s ‘series…

‘…of paintings and drawings exploring layered narratives, using masterpieces of Western art and the Coen Brother’s film The Big Lebowski as a starting point.’

Now that’s an artist’s statement.

Above: paintings based on The Incredulity of St Thomas (Caravaggio, 1602) (1,2); Wanderer Above the Sea Of Fog (Caspar David Friedrich, 1818); Supper at Emmaus (Caravaggio, 1601); Oath of The Horatii (Jacques-Louis David, 1784); The Lamentation (Peter Paul Rubens, 1614) and Portrait of Pablo de Valladolid (Diego Velázquez, 1637).
