Glitched: “Girl With a Pearl Earring” (ca. 1665) by Johannes Vermeer.

The original painting by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s (ca. 1665) resides in the Mauritshuis, The Hague. It is a small oil on canvas painting, measuring only 17.52 × 15.35 inches [44.5 × 39 cm], and is one of only 36 known works by the artist.

Veneer’s painting only became famous around the turn of the 21st century, with the work’s exhibition in 1995 at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and with he publication of Tracy Chevalier’s best-selling novel Girl with a Pearl Earring in 1999. The novel was adapted into a film in 2003 starring Colin Firth as Vermeer.

Even with the deconstruction and disintegration I apply in the process of my work, the haunting gaze of Vermeer’s model is not lost.

My individual pieces may undergo as many as 5 or 6 dozen iterations or different detailed editing processes to produce the final image. Working with Vermeer’s original image, those processes took two distinctly different directions, yielding a bright, colorful version, and a second, darker version. I am pleased with both, and proud to offer them at MakersPlace.
