Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury began her Go Bust series in 2008 as a riff on both the Op-Art icon Victor Vasarely's Gordes series, which famously use geometric distortion to create an illusion of bulbous forms on a flat surface, as well as Damien Hirst's colorful spot paintings. Like many of Fleury's best-known works, this series re-contextualize the celebrated signature works of white male artists. The Go Bust paintings are an extension of Stretch-a series of photographs Fleury produced in 1996 of close up details of garments worn by female models. This series of photographs included images Fleury shot using dresses from the fall 1995 Jean Paul Gaultier collection, which referenced Vasarely in a cheeky way. The imagery in Go Bust takes singular and flat masculine forms and doubles them to read as breasts, or a bust-round female forms posited as the archetypal dot.
