Remix Paintings

Above is a painting by George Baselitz which he refers to as a "remix" painting.  " I have thought for a long time about what to call what I do. I liked the word 'remix' because it comes from youth culture.".  Baselitz  paints with swathes of bright, transparent hue across white canvas and explosive, meandering lines,  The remix paintings are considered to be radical transubstantiation based of his earlier works.  They are part caricature, or part ghost of the subject that is depicted.  We can see this in the painting above in the white, middle section.
