This installation is made of 25 compositions on cardboard boxes, made between 2020 and 2022. The method of making and the ingredients are the same. The outcome is very different and variable. It made me think of the human D.N.A. How we all are made of the same but differ so much from each other.
In this work I realized a new composition existing out of individual pieces which are combined together to create a new image. The frame is made of old left-over pieces of wood and combined with new parts.
The frame that is holding the 3 boxes and 1 little one is constructed to accommodate the composition boxes, which are commutable, because you can simply pull them out and change them for another and make your own combination. The shape and design are inspired on fruit and vegetables baskets as you see them presented in markets or grocery stores.
I wanted to emphasize the heritage of the painted boxes which are made of packaging materials coming from the world of consuming.
A deconstruction op a ‘verspakket’ packaging. Through working with packaging boxes for my small compositions, this one came out parallel during the proces of making. A very old and not finished painting on a wooden panel became the background for this non narrative work. it is the first time that I used the packaging on a non dimensional scale, in spite of good intentions the black ‘ribbon’ made it 3-dimension again, because I felt it worked too strong not to be part of it.
This small framed painting is nummer 22 from the series, made with a de-folded cardboard packaging box. The work sizes 16 x 22cm and the wooden frame is 20 x 28 cm and comes with anti-glared glass. The collage contains pieces of a polyurethaan grocery bag and pieces of cardboard molded om the surface with paint used as glue. The image is build up harmoniously in different stages and can be turned all four sides, upside down, any which way you like it best. In the spirit of #artistsupportpledge, I can offer this small work for sale at a price of 150,- incl.
