I found this piece about photographer Sharon Core really fascinating. She obsessively recreates the pastries, cream soups, and other delicacies in artist Wayne Thiebaud’s well-known paintings and photographs them. The owner of her gallery points out that she’s creating still lifes that never existed, since Thiebaud painted from memory. Brilliant commentary on art, homage, or purely plagiarism? Maybe a little of all three? Is imitation flattery? Apparently not, as Thiebaud is not amused. Painting on left, photograph right. More on display here.
