RECREATING ARTWORK AT HOME | LOCKDOWN 2020
Soundtrack by MORENO ANDREATTA (www.morenoandreatta.com)
Sharing the love for Art with a laugh: recreating artwork with things found at home, embracing the Getty Museum challenge. One Artie a day during Lockdown 2020.
Arties were made by a ‘one-woman band’, whilst the brilliant soundtrack was kindly composed ad hoc by Moreno Andreatta .
What started as a friend’s challenge for a laugh soon became a daily appointment…and created an amusing bond among quarantined souls worldwide. It was fun and rewarding, especially seeing the tremendous feedback of participation – and challenges! – I was receiving. Such a positive exchange of energy!
Lockdown or not, I hope it will inspire you to do the same: it is also a great way to review artworks under a completely different light, bringing you closer both to the artist and to the subject portrayed. I will now remember each artwork in detail and, most likely, forever!
Why not show it to your children (or pupils, or friends) and try to do the same? Which one will you try first – are there any of these you like in particular? Any other artwork you would have liked to see? Please, do make sure to let me know in your comments – you never know what might come out of it! I am all eyes and ears…’
