Ikea- Painting Of Woman And Man Looking For Art In Ikea Store



Ikea
painting of a woman and man looking for 'art' in Ikea store

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
36 1/2" x 27 2/3" or 93,3 x 70 cm
2007

In an Ikea store painting of I saw a woman and a man looking for so-called paintings.

Of course the art they're looking at isn't real art, these are just prints on canvas not even limited in edition. Thousands of the same image are in circulation and many have them in their homes. I thought it would be interesting to paint those images as a way to elevate them to real art.

With Ikea I want to raise questions about consumerism and of course just make an image that's beautiful to look at too.

If you're interested in purchasing this painting just send me an email to info@gerardboersma.nl stating the title for more information and price.

kind regards, Gerard
