Mixed Media DecayPosted: October 26, 2013
Here are some small square samples I produced, whilst experimenting and practicing creating a mould effect on canvas.
Here I was highly inspired by the rotting works of Dieter Roth. He worked in mixed media as well and poured plaster in with moulding food and let it crack to see what effect was created. To take his influence further I would like to experiment with putting food into paint and other art materials to see whether the food rots and decays or is preserved by the paint. This relates to time as if the paint did preserve the food it would be as if time had stopped or slowed down. It would be highly interesting and relevant to my project to see whether there is a change over time.
