Emperor's Lost Painting Corp. - 26 Artificially produced works

The urge to make larger work while I've been traveling has generated these new inkjet/silkscreen pieces. Playing with the idea of  the Emperor's New Clothes in this series I relegated myself to using my iPhone 6s Pro as my studio to produce mid size "paintings" (inkjet on canvas). The inspiration here is Die by Tony Smith. I wanted to use my phone to map everything out, send it the manufacture to produce and viola 26 paintings to end the year. 

I couldn't help think of Walter Dahn, Donald Beachler to an extent as well.
