Look and like

One thing you often here is how people have suddenly found themselves driving through a McCahon landscape or seeing Rita Angus sheds or noticing Don Driver type tarpaulin works as they move around the country. It’s the same here. Of course the streets are where much of contemporary art’s ideas have their beginnings and its droll to see it folded back in again as you wander round. Here’s three lookalikes we have seen over the last few days.
