More Art Inspired Art

Originally uploaded by sigh clone.
This is an early work from the CAF [Collaborative Art on Flickr] project... it is a photomosaic made with a program called AndreaMosaic and consists of tiles created from photos and sub images submitted to that project... it pleases me that I can produce a fresh richness to an already great work of art... whilst it is based on one of gaugain's most famous self portraits... I am sure this is not plagiarism... it is homage and inspiration... but I was suddenly turned cold when a friend said is was an extra ordininary rendition... then I realized she was talking about art, and not the moral bankruptcy and spin doctoring of some governments... viva l'art
