Jeff Bennett's 'War on Kinkade' series depicts the Star Wars characters that we know and love plundering through Thomas Kinkade's pastoral paintings. The collection of Stormtroopers and AT-ATs certainly look out place amidst Kinkade's picturesque landscapes, but they also offer a compelling contrast. Gone are the peaceful panoramas that the prolific artist had in mind, replaced with scenes humming with riotous energy.
The Galactic cast of characters have completely ravaged the harmonious countryside, but the effect is rather cool. Kinkade enjoyed a rich period of success in the 20th century and Star Wars continues to be a prominent and beloved film series. Since these works are celebrated in specific creative fields, seeing them combined in one artistic medium is an interesting fusion of different cultural forms. The series is sure to delight Star Wars and art fans alike.
