Introduction Contact: dane.lachiusa at yahoo dot com Voice mail: Nine One Seven-647-6149. I am Pablo Matisse! Appropriating the work of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse with paintings that represent a uniquely derivative post-modern kind of beauty. Call it Ironic Pastiche perhaps, since beauty is a dirty word. The thingly thing about post- modernism is that all the old styles are up for grabs, but none of the meanings are the same. Of course, every artist has some previous artist's work in mind when they are creating a new image. We are all the fruit of Matisse and Picasso. It's the modification of that recognition that draws you into my work. I interpret, I don't copy. I appropriate key elements so that the riff on each artist is unmistakable. My work would not function otherwise. I hope my work represents a break from the past. One day I'll be the past. Perhaps me and now don't fit. Someone said Arts new system of Now are mutations of their old system of then. Or perhaps they were putting us on. -Pablo Matisse
