OH gosh. This assemblage style painting is by the artist Erin Currier. She lives and works in New Mexico. The title of the painting is Prom Queen Sergio Garcia as the Buddha. It is part of a series of cultural mash-ups. In several pieces she puts contemporary players from today's canon in to poses of ancient religious figures.
I think she is extremely talented. I am pleased to have discovered her via the wonders of Facebook. Hinton Harrison, a long time Bead Garden patron and my Facebook friend, posted an album of her current exhibit in Taos, New Mexico. Her work is refreshing and awesome.
I discovered Hinton has his own website. Check him out here: http://www.hintonharrison.com/. Hinton has written a book called My Journey for Peace and is a very interesting dude.
