A take on The Peasant Wedding, by Pieter Bruegel the Elder
A piece of Art History that seems to begin with the elaborate use of light in the extremely complex compositions of the “Golden” period of Flemish painting could end with the introduction of light as the main cause of creating kaleidoscopic hallucinatory images which are also unlimitedly compound and complex. As Robert Sobieszek writes, “Art History is over. The light writes in space. Art is a comet’s tail.”
The Peasant Wedding
"The bride is in front of the green textile wall-hanging, with a paper-crown hung above her head"
"The feast is in a barn in the summertime"
"Τwo sheaves of grain with a rake recalls the work that harvesting involves, and the hard life peasants have"
