Meta-redux/revisit to San Marco Convent in Florence.
I'm holding up my catalogue from my exhibition, The Museum of Inherent Vice from 2007. In the catalogue is a photo I took during my first visit to San Marco in 2004, featuring a conservator painting a fresco in one of the exterior apses in the courtyard. I returned in 2008 and decided to re-photograph the same scene but with the finished fresco. I also did this at the Brancacci Chapel in Santa Del Carmine with Masaccio's Tribute Money fresco cycle (I'd used the disciples from the fresco in a painting of mine) and also in the Vatican with Raphael's School of Athens, of which I'd used the swastika-decorated arch that frames the fresco.
