Sturtevant turns the concept of originality on its head. All of her works are copies other artists’; none are originals. Her work includes copies of Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys, Frank Stella, Felix Gonzalez-Torres. She masters painting, sculpture, photography and film in order to produce a full range of copies of the works of her chosen artists. In most cases, her decision to start copying an artist happened before those artists achieved broader recognition. Nearly all of the artists she chose to copy are today considered iconic for their time or style. This has given rise to discussions amongst art critics how it has been possible for Sturtevant to identify these now famous artists at such an early stage.
