After Matisse by Adéle du Plessis

"After Matisse" is an appropriated painting of a work by Matisse in Adéle du Plessis's signature style. What is her signature style? A granulated background created by coffee grounds creates a thick impasto. She paints with broad Impressionist brushstrokes over this heavily textured background. Appropriation art is when an artist takes an image of another artist and incorporates it into a new piece of artwork. As a female artist, Adéle is often measuring herself up to the male-dominated Western art canon. Learning and evolving from this art canon, while also subverting the canon.
