Orchard's Demoiselles appropriates Picasso's ubiquitous Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

Demoiselles de Imitaśion steals from an already abstracted image of a set of women and abstracts it further. This piece, however, focuses on the image of Picasso's more than the objects depicted within it. Alluding to a Pop tradition of involving screen printed and otherwise repeated images on the same plane, Orchard splits faces, bodies and limbs as to destroy any semblence of univocality each formerly human subject might once have had.
