The Sower (after Van Gogh)', 2011. Color Coupler Print (C-Print / Chromogenic / Ektacolor). Dimensions: 26-3/4" x 20-3/8" framed, 25-1/2" x 19-1/4" image. SIGNED and dated' 2011' by artist in black marker on titled and numbered descriptive label adhered to verso of issued framing (archivally custom framed in black wood).

Excellent condition with no visible defects. Is a photograph of a composition of dried flower pods, sprigs of lavender, straw, dried seeds and sticks that Vik Muñiz installed inside the Chapelle des Célestins-Place des Corps Saints, Avignon, France in 2012. The image re-created Vincent van Gogh's iconic painting of a sower, using the very debris of the sower's task twigs, seeds, straw, etc. In doing so, Muñiz's composition focuses on the materiality that is only implicit in van Gogh's representation of the sower's labor.

The photograph of the composition, however, removes the viewer from accessing such material debris, and so draws attention to how representation, and more specifically, photography is a form of flattening and exclusion, even when it gives us visual access to so much. Peanut butter and jam, chocolate, sugar, wire, dirt and diamonds are just a few of the astonishing range of materials used by artist Vik Muñiz in the images he produces and then photographs. Since the mid-1990s, Brazilian artist Vik Muñiz has earned an international reputation for the photographic pieces he creates out of everyday materials.

These images, inspired by current events, art history or famous figures, are familiar yet enigmatic. Initially taking the form of witty visual statements, his works question the way visual information is constructed, presented and then perceived by the viewer.

Since 1989, Muñiz has exhibited widely, with solo exhibitions in highly prestigious institutions in New York, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, Houston, Santiago de Compostela, Rome, Madrid and Dublin. He took part in the 24th Bienal de São Paulo in 1998, and represented Brazil at the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001.

He now divides his time between Rio de Janeiro and New York. Muñiz' " illusions " have won over critics and public alike. Time Magazine rated the artist as one of the " Leaders of the New Millennium " and The New York Times recommended his work as a sure-fire antidepressant, describing it as " an idea wrapped up in surprise and laughter "! Widely collected, Muñiz's work is in the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; the Daros Foundation, Zurich; and the Tate, London.
