*Artist notes:
Long bothered by foreign-factory-made paintings being put into fancy frames and sold in boutiques and even in some galleries, Ward tracked down one of the sweatshops (located in Xiamen, China) and obtained dozens of kitcshy pictures —which Ward cut up and collaged into these paintings. The title-nickname, WineArt SwineFart relates to Ward's attitude to such mock-Impressionism, pseudoTuscan landscapes, and still-life quasipaintings decorating so many restaurants and offices.
