I started this new project that I’m really excited to share! I have been gathering trash from parks around where I live for awhile now, along with my wife, and I really wanted to start a series that pushed my idea further.
Upon first glance the painting may seem like it’s a big change from my other work but it still has all the same elements. Within the piece there is the presence of us as well as our impact on the environment, in a broad way of course. It also contains a commercial product that we have consumed, or someone has.
I decided to make these paintings large scale in order to make us as viewers feel small. This issue is bigger than us as individuals which is why it will take all of us taking notice and making changes to make a difference.
