Motivation of the artist
For the Compositions the intention was to borrow existing material that was disregarded or neglected. Like “expired” art works they were required to make room for new decorative paintings. Dated, thus forgotten, left in attics, thrown out, or sold cheap.
By placing this work into a new configuration, I investigate alternative forms of continuing to be. By adding new concept to the work, I hope to cheat the inevitable. Co-existing in this new composition, the work is open to new interpretation. The significance seems to shift from a visual value to a more conceptual idea on impermanence.
