"I'm just a monkey with a paint brush. Put something in front of me and I paint it. I can only paint what I can see." That's Brett Neal, the artist who creates a history of art series by taking everyday ordinary objects and make them extraordinary. His witty fiberglass sculptures, such as this Beagle in Boots is to take the kitsch object to the point of art at the same time creating a diversion by placing the work of great masters on the object that is totally out of context to the paintings. Pondering the fine line between kitsch and art.
