Flour camouflage

After effects is a series of architectural scale models constructed with black paper and covered with flour and a layer of mould to create the effect of old abandoned buildings. My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings are able to communicate. (Daniele del Nero)

I’ve found a maquette of residential building in a dump. I put it in my garden and I started to photograph it periodically for a year until it disappear. (DdN)

Flowers of the case

I was always fascinated by the way vegetal life is able to develop in every environment, even in adverse situation. At the same time I’ve always found an aesthetic and expressive value in those spaces where nature defeats the human tendency to subdue the ground and finally is free to express all its energy.
Moving from this reflection I tried to focus on this topic with a simple test on my balcony: close to my plants on 15th july I put a little jar full of ground. I haven’t sown anything in it. After a month, the first sprout appears. Today my jar is full of those vegetations which are disdainful named weeds, in order to create a little environment where domestic and wild are crossing each other. Flowers of the case is an open project which testifies a process that is going to develop in the time. (DdN)

Feather light

A cold heart looks at small birds floating in snow and sees the impetuous accuracy of innocence.
A hypocrite-optimist looks at small birds floating in snow and sees the fragility of creepy happiness.

Oil paintings by Martin Wittfooth
"My work stems from a personal desire to process and reflect on the increasingly haywire relationship, confusion, and general detachment – both of experience and understanding - that the modern-day industrialized world has with its surrounding environment, and the forced and uneasy assimilations that take place when the two inevitably meet.

By removing the human figure from my works and instead portraying nature in man-made or manufactured settings, my work forces us to be impartial observers to these scenes and to process the tension within them as mere witnesses rather than active participants.

Much of this work deals with violence, disquiet, chaos and collapse, but not entirely absent in these works is also the suggestion of hope and the presence of beauty."

Martin Wittfooth is a painter living in NYC, USA.
