Scott Chasse - "Burt Reynolds and Friends"




The most recent series of paintings "Burt Reynolds and Friends" involves portrait-like depictions of several celebrities which were chosen for recognizability, interestingness, and my own personal enjoyment. The resulting atypical iconography invites the viewer to consider why these figures were chosen while simultaneously experiencing the magnetic and sometimes nostalgic feelings brought on by the famous faces. By utilizing such imagery, I am able to carefully monitor the success of each piece based on how convincingly a well-known likeness is portrayed with such limited information.
