Artist's Statement

My work deals with the relationship between the copy and the original. For several years I made inexpensive “Bootleg” versions of work by “hot” contemporary artists and sold them on the streets of Chelsea and outside of art fairs. More recently, I have been recreating artworks by Conceptual artists from the late 60’s and early 70’s who attempted to remove traces of their “hand” from their work. I am interested in the similarities and differences between my recreations and the original works. For example, what are the aesthetic/creative/economic differences between an authorized Sol LeWitt wall drawing that is executed by hired draftsmen and one that I have created following the same instructions?
