Art Description

Painting: Enamel, New Media, Ink, Resin, Oil on Wood.

This painting was created on a custom wood panel with oil, enamel, gold leaf, transfer and art resin. There are themes inherent in this series of work of social inequality, technology luxury, fashion and denial. Morbidity and destruction paired with art history, rampant consumerism contrasted with historic events, conflicts between control and unpredictability, disassembling and re-appropriating the systems that surround us, technological chaos versus human balance — or vice versa. This mixing of materials through painting and historic events speaks directly to our collective state. And just as this visual corruption speaks to our collective state, incorporating luxury brand logos represents our very personal effort to represent ourselves as perfect in an imperfect world.

I chose this medium and the subject matter as a way to express what I see as a world coming apart, obsessed by power, corruption, luxury, wealth and technology.
