Like Carra Sings
2009
Acrylic, gouache and crushed Froot loops on paper
69 x 50 cm

“My compositions are prepared beforehand, and I often work from collages or quick doodles. Like Carra Sings is a small work on paper. It’s a collage and there are crushed Froot Loops glued onto it that look like sand. Froot Loops are this really bland empty oat filler that have vitamins added to them, and I think of them as an analogy for painting: adding a moment of vivid nutrition to a homogenous base. Sometimes the images are relatively bland and I agitate them to give them more life or levity.”
