Dead On Arrival
29 Sep 22 by justatest
The balcony of the apartment I rented was full of dead plants. Some weeks had passed before I ventured out to investigate.

DOA, oil on mixed media, 42cm X 38cm X 13cm

I couldn't do much about the vegetation but there was an old rolled up water hose that looked very interesting. I took it, sealed in in calico and glue, gave it a layer or two of gesso, then painted it purple. I suppose I'd call this a found object.
Then what's all this about contemporary art being so difficult? - it's easier than watering the plants.
