A few nude pics, but mostly safe.

Most of those look fake.

From the artist's statement:

This work is about simulation. Creating a clone or a copy of the 'real' on paper. It is not a fake, it takes the place of the 'real' for a moment, whilst looking at the image. The aim is to create likenesses of icons, where in the image, the simulations of icons, 'threatens the difference between 'true' and 'false, between 'real' and 'imaginary'. The 'real' subject becomes not necessary. The photographic image or the icon is more important and more seductive. It doesn't matter to the viewer if the portrayal is not the 'real' - as long as it looks like him or her - it creates a temporary confusion. This is the confusion the work searches to create. We think we are looking at something real, but we're not. They are false images of look-alikes of the real thing.

Based on that quote, this guy must have loved The Illusionist and The Prestige.

I'll have to wait until I get home to view the pics though.

They're pretty obviously bulls**t.

Oh, and the "artist" is an idiot.
