The new Golden Legend: Patrick Nicholas's secular saints
Hartley, John (2009) The new Golden Legend: Patrick Nicholas's secular saints. In Nicholas, Patrick R. (Ed.) Belle : Modern Italian Muses. Photonicholas.com, Orvieto, Italy, pp. 2-5.
The work of Italian-based photo-artist Patrick Nicholas is analysed to show how his re-workings of classic ‘old-master’ paintings can be seen as the art of ‘redaction,’ shedding new light on the relationship between originality and copying. I argue that redactional creativity is both highly productive of new meanings and a reinvention of the role of the medieval Golden Legend. (Lives of the Saints).
