ABSTRACT: New York artist Joy Garnett outlines her methods as a painter who routinely works with sampled or found images. She discusses her strategies for recontextualizing mass media images and her notions of painting as critique, as well as problems of intellectual property and fair use, notably the online cause celebre known as "Joywar."
