Notes on “Corporate Appropriation of Net Art”    I just had a conversation with a friend about a series of images I’ve made that attempt approximate the styles of a range of internet artists. She saw what I was doing differently than I did. After our conversation I realized how my intentions could easily be misconstrued. 

    To me this series is fun. It’s an excuse for me to analyze, experiment, and attempt to reverse engineer style, technique, and to make an opportunity to spend time with and deconstructan artist’s work. I get to enjoy art, experiment, to LEARN from these people. Of course I do add a ‘sinister’ element to these knock-offs. Though I think that net art is in a relatively safe corner there is always that fear that someone will turn what you like into something gross, commercial—so by doing these knock-offs in a safe place I’d like to think I’m taking that fear & turning it into something laughable.  I think the best kind of joke is one that walks you past a fear & makes you laugh at it.     So let me be explicit: I am not making fun of any artists. I love these artists and their work.Please enjoy their work as I have. In the order they appear:
knock-off of Zack Dougherty
knock-off of Rafaël Rozendaal
knock-off of Elton Kuns
knock-off of Anthony Antonellis
knock-off of Vince McKelvie
knock-off of Jon Rafman
Knock-off of Alec Mackenzie
I’ve also added additional information to the original posts.
