Curatorial Statement

We've seen the art, but what about the artist? "Behind the Art" is an exploration of the life of Tim Oren, a fictional digital artist who combined advertisements with classic paintings. The art is examined from two perspectives: that of the artist and that of the critic. Each piece is accompanied by a short blurb that discusses the concept and execution. The creation and criticism of the art is just as much a part of this project as the art itself. Its intention is to make the viewer consider not only the edited images, which deal with the effects of corporations on society, but also who created it and whether or not he was effective. The last image, an edit of da Vinci's "The Last Supper", is connected with the artist's death, completing his body of work and adding a sense of finality.
