‘They Are Amongst Us’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Mr Mitty. Printed onto Fine Art Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Mr Mitty combines photomontage, collage, and fine art, to create a striking and distinctive aesthetic. Merging cultural references - from Hollywood stars and musicians, to members of the Muppets gang - Mr Mitty’s prints are a smart and playful take on the contemporary fascination with celebrity culture.
‘They Are Amongst Us’ appropriates Albert Bierstadt’s nineteenth century landscape painting ‘Among the Sierra Nevada, California’, which depicts a serene setting of mountains and lakes, bathed in the divine, golden light of manifest destiny.
Yet Mr Mitty has tweaked the image to foreshadow America’s fascination with UFOs, that would sweep the nation a century later: the heavenly glow suddenly becomes other-worldly, as spaceships descend from the clouds, surfing above the quietly grazing deer. Brilliantly conceived, and expertly executed, Mr Mitty’s ironic splicing of traditional and contemporary imagery is pure genius.
