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.
Different outcomes with all the same packaging boxes from an AH verspakket, de-folded and re-arranged with an exploratory attitude to see what ingredients you can set out to make a painting without narrative.
