Olaf Breuning creates videos, sculptures, drawings, and installations that investigate kitsch, appropriation, cliché, and popular culture, and hint at a collective visual iconography. Breuning’s unique mode of pastiche is eclectic by design, drawing icons from sources both high and low, Edvard Munch to Andy Warhol's Marilyns to the Easter Bunny. In “The Art Freaks,” a series of 2011 color photographs, Breuning painted nude models' bodies to evoke the signature styles of influential 20th-century artists like Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Jackson Pollock, and On Kawara, questioning our relationship to supposed “masterpieces,” as well as our mediated experience of them through reproductions.
