digesteble art – magritte

Artist Statement: “This abstract portrait series explores what can represent a pixel (the individual units that compose an image), and re-constructs and modernizes famous artworks by the old masters, including Da Vinci, Vermeer and Magritte. The mosaic-like installations are composed using coloured pieces of toast, which act as digestible pop art-like pixels. The familiarity of the toast pieces is challenged by their colour, scale and repetition, yet the strong heritage of the paintings pierces through the abstract expression, encouraging the viewer to reflect on the power of recognizing a familiar sight through colour combination. The title comes from my aim to create art that is digestible and relatable. I’m inspired by the ordinary that can be meaningful and understood by a wide and diverse audience, and act as a universal trigger instead of a complex matter that is only relevant to a small group of people.”
