A series of 54 copies in oils of every nude in the Miami Bass Museum’s collection.  The copies are based on documentation of the original paintings and sculptures that has been cropped to focus on the nude.  Everything other than the nude is painted in monochrome with the painting spilling out onto the frame.  The paintings are sized to fit a random collection of thrift-store frames and hung salon-style on images of contemporary mass media nudity.
