Disposable Aesthetics is a bit of a continuation of the Static Flux series; that is, a consideration of the temporariness of objects in a disposable society through painstaking, detailed paintings. The paintings focus on capturing the collective disassociation that most people have with the litany of identical disposable objects that get thrown away on a daily basis. Our numbness to the excessive use of plastic on a global scale is perhaps aided by the craft of the package designs. The alluring and convenient nature of a soy sauce packet or origami box is strongly associated with the saturated tastes of readily available take-away foods that grease the wheels of a culture on the move. The paintings are intended to capture the insidious beauty of the objects as well as give them a permanence through preservation in paint.
