James Hyde, "Stuart Davis Group," at The Boiler

"Bye Bye Brueghel," a headline on the Art Newspaper's website reads. It seems that British pranksters Jake and Dinos Chapman have defaced Brueghel the Younger's 1607 Cavalry, painting on top of the £220,000 ($325,000) work and offering their new version for sale. Its new, improved price: £750,000 ($1.11 million). Its the latest in a series that has seen the Chapmans rework canvases by Goya, Hogarth, and — yes — Hitler, according to the Art Newspaper.

Seeing a piece of art that has been made using the work of another artist is a little bit creepy: there's a feeling of cannibalism — or at least patricide. Other examples: Martin Kippenberger's 1987 Model Interconti, made from a Gerhard Richter painting, and Robert Rauschenberg's 1953 Erased de Kooning. (However, de Kooning, at least, definitively knew what Rauschenberg was planning, making the younger artist's act more of a ritual murder.)

James Hyde, on the other hand, takes a more friendly approach to the making-art-by-destroying-art project, taking photographs of paintings by Stuart Davis, making large prints of details of those works, and then spreading enamel on top with a house-painter's roller. For six new paintings at Pierogi's magisterial Boiler space in northern Williamsburg, Hyde has used Davis' 1940 Report from Rockport and his 1939 Mural for Studio B, WNYC, Municipal Broadcasting Company, 1939, both in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The texture of Davis' paint is rendered in startling detail in the prints, and they're baffling to look at, even up close. Sure, one is not always in the mood for gargantuan works, but when that feeling arises, Pierogi's Boiler is one of the most consistent venues in town.
