Replay

Artist: 
Tod Tremeer
Date: 
January 10, 2009 to February 18, 2009

Replay reflects the artist's investigation of history and history painting. In particular Tremeer examines how the history of war has been represented in paintings, museum dioramas, historical photographs, and in war toys; as well as how his reproductions of these representations add another layer of interpretation to history. Furthermore, by placing his paintings, all of which are personal re-interpretations of other interpretations of wars (models, dioramas, posters), in public museums and galleries, Tremeer gives them the authenticity that these venues provide while questioning the very concept of authenticity.
