I’ve just run across Miuccia Klaar’s work on Koinup, but what I’ve seen so far impresses me — a body of exhibited work that’s young (63 pieces at this writing), but with a lot of talent, a painterly eye, and a way to get fantastic effects from her tools. For instance, see this piece, Endless Summer, which uses a texturing overlay done by Lenabem Anna. The final effect makes this “photograph” look like it belongs on an exhibit wall in the Metropolitan or the Whitney Museum.
