Museum Patrons: Karin Jurick Paints The Museum Visitors Immersed In The Contemplation Of Art

While most people visit museums and just enjoy the art, Karin Jurick is studying the whole scene. She takes out her camera and captures pictures of museum patrons engrossed in art and then goes back to her studio to paint both the art and the visitor, or as she describes it, ‘moments in time, people just doing their thing’. She calls this whole series Museum Patrons. What’s most impressive about this body of work is that Jurick has to closely replicate work from the all-time greatest masters. Monets, Picassos, Klimts, nothing seems too intimidating for the artist. As an homage to one of her all-time favorite movies, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Jurick painted the scene where the three friends stopped for a moment to take in some iconic art. “There’s a scene in the movie when Ferris, his girlfriend Sloane and his best friend Cameron go through the Art Institute of Chicago – something I’d done dozens of times and even cut school to do so. The three friends stop and stand in front of the three Picassos…Well since then, many people have mimicked the pose – it became a tradition. And their visit to an art museum proved to be an inspiration for young people to do the same. That’s a good thing.”
