Inside the cylinder there is a removable plastic saucer that can carry a potted plant or other type of vase.
“Yellow Cylinder Containers” (2020-2021)
“In my practice, I work with a theme that moves in and out of time and perishability. I focus on materials and putting a permanent mark on these materials and our time. My work displays traces and marks that show an attempt on perpetual action.
The cylinders deal with putting yet another permanent mark on something that is already man-made, disposed of, and should have vanished. The cylinders are painted and bent old steel plates, bolted together and embossed with angle grinder drawings showing my own attempt to create a permanent mark in our time, an attempt which I expect slowly will keep on changing in degradation by time.
The work as a plant container and thereby container of something living is about the contrast between the man-made and more permanent and the naturally degradable.”
