A retired electrician in southern France who once worked for painter Pablo Picasso says he has hundreds of previously unknown works by the artist” worth close to $80 million. The work in question dates from the 1900-1932 Picasso’s blue period. Already the Picasso Estate is questioning how he came into possession of so many pieces. It has been estimated that in his career he has created over 20,000 works of art.

Megan Scheminske’s Google map paintings are minimal and beautiful. It’s an interesting comment on our cultural necessity to know where we are. When I first learned about her work, I expected photo-realistic landscapes from satellite imagery but, instead was pleasantly surprised at her approach and juxtaposition to it’s subject matter. The strength of the work comes from the process she creates. The location, Google, juxtaposition of the work, and interface experience. As the body of work grows the better it will get.
