Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ is among the most iconic images in Western art. It was conceived in the artist’s penultimate year, before an open window at the Saint-Paul asylum in Southern France and in a state of deep contemplation. This state, which was born from Van Gogh’s psychological strife, has been likened to the space between life and death. It propels the work’s musicality – it’s swirling sky, fusion of day and night and staccato use of colour. This is not a landscape in a literal, but rather an emotional sense – a cosmic meeting of inner and outer worlds.

In his homage to the masterpiece, Philippe Le Miere relives and remixes ‘Starry Night’. He inserts bats, turning the romantic scene into something more frightening. One is reminded of Dracula or the Wicked Witch of the West’s castle. Most striking however, is how Le Miere conjures and disrupts Van Gogh’s image, demonstrating just how entrenched it is in our visual vocabulary. As the nineteenth-century artist knew, the landscape is but a cipher for its spectator’s internal (and cultural) reality.

Le Miere is a shape-shifter of cultural icons. Taking the familiar and refracting it through his imagination, his wonderfully weird vision sees the everyday rendered surreal. Coupled with a distinct practice, Le Miere has earned a reputation for a style that is as original, as it is witty. For admirers of Van Gogh, the horror canon or pop art, this work is sure to inspire.
