Tulsi Maya, under artist moniker prettywhores, is an Australian artist creating some powerful alloys. Her work involves a mix of modern design and historic fragments, together synthesizing formidable works of art. (Some are even animated.) This evocation of “futuristic nostalgia” extends into a warping vision of the present. With the series “COPS,” she illustrated over old photographs of police officers, manipulating the past with curious detail, and perhaps curiouser intent. Are we to question who the real monsters are? (Without generalizing, of course.) I’ll leave you to ponder that.
