Georgia-born and based artist Samuel Stabler is known for his contemporary take on Old Master paintings. The artist recreates these masterworks in highly detailed pen-and-ink drawings, which he then obscures with streaks of neon yellow, adding a contemporary update to centuries-old masterpieces. Sourcing images from the internet, he also creates meticulous cut-outs, transforming once-familiar subjects into abstract webs of line and contour. “Old Masters used to paint the masters before them,” he has said. “The Internet age has allowed me to have this huge access to information, so I’m appropriating it in the way that makes sense to me now.”
