Time keeping across a time line, a life spans as you grow.
Powdered copper mixed with acrylic creates the ground of these paintings. Earth is extracted, crushed, and reused. Miracle Grow plant food acts as a tarnishing agent sprayed on the copper.
Copper is a natural resource that is often used as a filter or conduit for plumbing. It is often stolen and resold as scrap.
Miracle grow is a supplement for plants. This food source enhances the plants’ growth in collaboration with the sun through photosynthesis.
The miracle grow allows CO2 filtering plants to thrive which in turn keeps us alive. Pain, pleasure, escape, touch.
These different small paintings have manifested as:
Process driven transcripts of solar panels (touch)
My partners breasts (pleasure)
Paintings of the moon from personal photographs (escape)
My leg bruised from an accident in a wood-shop (Pain).
Pain, pleasure, escape, touch.
Solar panels convert the energy of the sun into usable electricity, which is analogous to the miracle grow changing the material state of copper through oxidation. Converting one material to another on a flat plane through the intervention of synthetic material. Synthetic synthesis?
