Art Responses 3

As mentioned in my previous posts (Art Responses), looking at art is interesting, particularly noticing how some artists keep referencing previous artworks, or bluntly copying them. It is a way of adding further insight to old ideas or simply repeating forms and techniques. I believe that there are some physical constraints that can never be overcome. Is the universe so limited visually that artists keep repeating things over and over again? Compositions, structures, placements, etc. Here, I present another set of works for comparison. Some of them are more coincidental then others. However, in some cases the connection is far too obvious. Note that this post is simply an exercise…
