Dutch Paintings Re-Invented

This is a definite WANT! Wish I had money. NY artist Michael Mapes re-invents dutch paintings ... with ... uhm ... things. This is his explanation:

"The samples are part of my most recent series of work examining Dutch Master Portraiture. In this work, I deconstruct the original subject, in both a figurative and literal sense by dissecting photos of a painting and considering ways in which the parts might serve to inspire new parts within the reconstruction to suggest unique and complex meanings. I’ve done these works with the use of a visual metaphor suggesting a pseudoscientific method specifically working with materials and processes signifying entomological, biological and forensic science."

Even better than the real thing.
