Welcome to 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings reinterpreted through 21st-century eyes. Painter Tiffany Calvert’s latest series features the tulip mania surrounding the Dutch flower “Semper Augustus.” The red-and-white “broken” striped petals, the result of a virus, caused quite a market frenzy, eventually leading to the Dutch economy crashing in 1637. Calvert is well known for fragmenting her compositions, as if waiting for the image to settle and come into focus. “Of course, I see an interesting crossover with … viruses and the corrupted ‘gitched’ data of some of my paintings,” she said.
