Oil on canvas
80 x 60 (cm)
In the Garbage I explore the beauty in the ugly and seek harmony in chaos.
I confront the viewer with a massive pile of rubbish towering over its barriers. Overflowing, piled up and unorganized, I find the garbage distasteful yet somehow aesthetically interesting. But rather than painting the individual objects, I am interested in how they became an abstract pile of colorful waste. Variety of shapes, colours and the materiality of paint evoke a sense of garbage whilst creating a beautiful composition on their own.
