Van Gogh Reconstructed

In Van Gogh Reconstructed, the artist and poet Paul takes eight works by Vincent Van Gogh (Bedroom in Arles, Cafe Terrace at Night, Irises, Landscape at Saint-Rémy, Portrait of Dr. Gachet, Sunflowers, The Potato Eaters, and The Starry Night) and abstracts them through pixelation to reveal average color distributions over given areas of the image, from the entirety of the painting as one solid color to a “full resolution” image of the painting. Through these eleven stages of resolution, attention is called to the question of “what constitutes adequate reproduction?”

In its manifold aspects, Van Gogh Reconstructed can be viewed variously as a color study, as an examination of graphic reproduction, and as a work of visual poetry.

Van Gogh Reconstructed is part of the Reconstructed series of art books (Bosch, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, and Rousseau).
