CHALK OUTLINE

2007

Piet Van starts from the idea that a chalk outline is used on the ground outlining evidence at a crime scene. Police officers take photos and add numbers to the supporting documents. What would this look like with Salvador Dalì or Marilyn Monroe? 

Normally there are also numbers associated with the various elements in the painting, but for Piet Van the aesthetic conflicts with the concept.
