Ursine Classics

These works explore the nature of cuteness and the politics of the art canon by restaging classic paintings with teddy bears. On one hand, violent, forceful, and cruel settings of the original paintings make the bears strangely sinister, far from their usual playful or pastoral settings. On the other, the way the bears demolish the aura of importance and nobility around the classic works accentuates the brutality of their scenes.
