Masters Fan Club

A tribute series of remixed paintings to honor the great artists of art history.

 In order to be a painter, one must first be a fan of painting. The only thing John Holcomb could do longer than standing in a quiet museum, staring at a painting, is sleeping. Seriously, he loves both (just ask his wife).   Similar to a musician reimagining their favorite song as a cover, John Holcomb has created an ongoing series of remixes of his favorite paintings. Although the science may have changed over the years, the art of painting is relatively unchanged. A color, suspended in paint, is applied to a surface, and a picture is created.  Throughout history, many great artists have come and gone, leaving behind a rich tapestry of well-planned compositions, that time has forgotten. This is John’s opportunity to build on and bring attention to creatives from the past, and make something new in the process.   ----------  “Polished my shoes, I bought a brand new hat, moved to a town that time forgot. Where I don’t have to shave, or be approachable, no I can do just what I want.” – Conor Oberst
