Utilizing materials derived from plastic and chemical compounds (rubber,
acetates and resins) my work alludes to the replacement of the noble
raw matter for the artificial. I consider this to be witness of our society’s
urging to produce and consume.
Constructions assembled out of the artificial
transform our daily landscape into one dominated by kitsch aesthetics.
What I propose is a commentary about thing that already exist but that are not altogether visible.
With objects typical of our time and place, I have friend and colleagues pose for my untrained photographic lens. As the people that pose vary, the objects are always the same: the object is protagonist.
The objects and figures inside the photographs are transformed as I present them to the public. As they see their daily lives mediated through a hybrid of humor and irony, an adverse dialogue between the object and the figure arises.
Flowers, pools, inflatable life-savers and plastics pigs all arranged with the purpose of rescuing our first-born urge to play, play kid games, play adult games.
