“Our imagery was borrowed from high culture, it belonged to the art historical cannon promoted by certain museums. They were all images that we had grown up with and respected. We were fascinated by these iconic paintings that appeared everywhere in picture books, photographs and drawings. Ultimately we decided to revisit them ironically.”
(Manolo Valdes cited in: Artist interview: Manolo Valdés (Equipo Crónica) in: Tate, September 2015, online).
