By the way, the title’s in Huttese
For clarity, the original title is El Pescador (The Fisherman) and I’ve name my “reinterpretation” The Hermit.
This isn’t one of Sorolla’s more famous works*, but I thought it lent itself well to a transformation into Old Ben.
* – quite a lot of these are naked children running around on beaches. A bit like the cover of “Houses of the Holy” (which you can find elsewhere on this site) something that could get an artist into bother these days.
I still feel like I need a shower, though.
* I still find it hard to understand why I was so excited by Episode I back in 1999 that I flew to the US for the opening day. I already knew the backdrop to the story was a trade dispute. A trade dispute!
The Imperial Walker is a thing of true beauty. It’s completely impractical, mind you, but then none of that matters with something that looks this awesome. I’ve no idea if this AT-AT is headed in the right direction or not. Maybe it doesn’t matter.
This is, of course, “in the style of” rather than a direct desecration of the original work, though given that used publicity stills from Niagara, this was made in much the same way (at least in terms of source material origin).
The originals … of which there are many … made millions of dollars for Warhol. This one, if it were to be sold, would only make money for George Lucas (or perhaps that’d be Mickey Mouse now).
