Brand New Paint Job

Rafman's "Brand New Paint Job" series consists of interiors, objects, and environments found online in Google's 3D Warehouse, appropriated, and modified by the artist through the process of texturing the entire scene with masterpieces from the historic cannon of painting. Rafman writes: "A conversation is going on between the surface and the underlying structure. In this way, the clash of the cultural weight of a high modernist paintings and a mass produced vehicle is not simply another example of the blurring of the distinction between high and low culture."
