Curator's Eye

Bihop’s bold, expressive works draw on the canon of art history by reinterpreting some of the world’s most recognisable works of art and literature. Most notable about these works is the omission of any human or animal form, but life and vivacity is ever-present in the form of energetic brushstrokes that dance across the canvas, splitting and dissecting the composition.

Adding to cart… The item has been added

A parody of Johannes Vermeer's 1658-60 work 'The Milkmaid'. In Vermeer's work, I tried to resolve class conflict and gender - discriminatory conflict by revealing a woman in a lower class who is the subject of housework.
