Series: On The Road
I base my work on my photography (printed on canvas) onto which I paint with acrylic. The works presented here address the theme of “Man and Nature.” I ask: How does our environment changed as a result of the human hand? Lacking respect for our natural world, mankind destroys the environment with only short-term consumption in mind. To underline this aspect in my work, I merge flat set pieces in order to create new space, tension, and relationships for the subject’s surroundings. What originally was a safe and natural environment for deer distorts into something new and undefinable, accentuated by the use of bright color. These works could be classified as Pop Art.
