Recent paintings by Christopher Friesen are based on the ubiquity and circulation of imagery from the Western art historical canon. Using landscape paintings by French artist Jean Baptiste Camille Corot (1796-1875) as a point of departure, Friesen explores notions of influence, quotation, authorship, and the “real” in the age of digital reproduction.
