Appropriation


This image was produced for my Appropriation project at the University of Hertfordshire.
Our task was to produce an appropriated image; a copy of a famous and symbolic piece of work.
For my image, I chose to appropriate the painting American Gothic, by Grant Wood.
This painting conveys a very strong political and cultural statement towards gender, roles and lifestyles.
I wanted to change this, bring it forward to the modern day and contrast with the original with how times have changed.
