Description
A series of paintings that retell a personal memory though abstract reproduction of famous art history paintings. I followed the color palette horizontally along the famous painting and painted the visual timeline of the work to follow the idea of a personal timeline from the memory.

(top to bottom:
1. My last high school painting + my transition from NYC to MICA.
2. Andy Warhol’s Tomato Soup Can + my experience with Carnegie Mellon University.
3. Giuseppe Archimboldo’s Vegetables In A Bowl Or The Gardener + my connection to the National Gallery of Art & Washington D.C.)
