Painting Series: PAINT TUBES
It's hard to visualize the quintessential image of a modern painter as a solo (and sometimes lonely) figure translating nature through their brush without the existence of tubes of paint. Artists have been painting their own art supplies on still lifes since the late 1800s.
By using paint tubes as our subject for this collection, we effectively become part of our creation, bringing paint into existence through paint itself. In turn, our painted tubes become more like us than their simplest existential form.
