With the exhibition titled ‘Happy Go Lucky,’ this series of ten new paintings is a collection of meticulously replicated paintings from French artists of the 18th and 19th centuries. Superimposed over the classical portraits are hand-painted texts from 21st-century digital lexicons—tweets, texting acronyms, technological icons—that permeate today’s popular culture.
