Gussied Up Abandoned Buildings

Patrick Baillet's, Spaces Palimpseste, takes me back to my first year art history class and our examination of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood's battle against the, 'frivolous art of the day.' Baillet paints Pre-Raphaelite images, such as Rosetti's Monna Vanna, amongst graffitied walls of abandoned, decaying buildings in France. Not sure if this is where he was going with the whole thing but it sounds good. For more of his work visit is website here. Images © Patrick Baillet
