This cut-paper collage postcard is a remix of Paul Gauguin’s "The Bathers"—created for the swap-bot challenge "Altered Art."
I used reproductions of four Gauguin paintings: The only thing here that’s a literal quote from "The Bathers" is the waterfall between the two women on the right. The four Tahitian bathers (two dressed in pareos, two nude) were traced from the painting and cut out as silhouettes from depictions of sand with shadows & flowers in two other paintings. The background is from a Brittany landscape.
