Incredible hyperrealistic paintings of rubbish by artist Tom Pfannerstill. The carefully crafted pieces are made from carved basswood and then painted with acrylic and/or enamel. They are each made based on objects the artist has found in the street and documented with a description of where and when they were discovered on the back. In the most obvious sense these pieces speak to issues of commercialism and consumerism. The objects reflect state-of-the-art-graphics; one can almost sense the well-planned and psychologically tested schemes to sell the products. They are a testament to the effectiveness of that marketing, after all, someone made the decision to purchase the product before consuming it and discarding the packaging. What happens next, though, is of greatest interest to me. These pieces are carried away and undergo a unique series of events that lead to their individuation. Take a look at the detailed images below. Head over to Tom’s website for a full explanation of the works.
