Reproducing Spanish Royalty

Pecha Kucha 20x20 presentation on Jun 05, 2014 in Garrison, New York. "20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images." Artist Michelle Vaughan discusses copies, genetics, history, and portait paintings. She goes into depth on the portraits Diego Velazquez was commissioned to create of the family of Spanish King Philip IV -- a family notorious for in-breeding. Michelle has created digital works of art that tell stories about the nature of replication, family genetics, and painterly techniques.
