Acknowledging the perennial allure that monkeys have on me is what sparked the idea for this painting.
I remember being up close with a monkey at the Bronx Zoo, with the monkey staring at my every move while I took pictures of him on my phone. I imagined if I were to drop my iPhone while taking pictures, monkeys are so smart, this is what my phone may look like when I retrieved it. This painting is an exaggeration of what monkeys are capable of. This painting, titled “Lost IPhone,” displays a silly, original concept that makes the viewer wonder: did another monkey take the photo, or did the monkey take a selfie?
