Works and process
Through thinking about background and foreground, covering of the painted surface to draw the viewer's attention to a particular area, and remembering something I had worked on last year (the interior of a shoe box), I started making work based around one phrase that interested and intrigued me: 'The Interior of a Landscape'. I am continuing to work on this throughout this period of self-isolation.

A landscape inside an interior -> An interior landscape -> The interior of a landscape

Oil on acrylic on wood. Trying to make a 'universal landscape'...didn't really work. But what even is a universal landscape??

Ruins as a very literal representation of the theme. Trees and other vegetation growing inside a house

I thought about what I could do with this idea of the ruin..Take one of its building blocks, a stone, and make a mould using latex to then cast a copy in plaster (middle)
http://taravangent.kabkfinearts.nl/files/gimgs/th-32_ooooo.png
Then I thought about making it hollow and exposing that.

A stone suburbia..?

Since one of the stones now had holes, I thought I should fill it with something..sand would flow out nicely.
http://taravangent.kabkfinearts.nl/files/gimgs/th-32_8_v6.png
So I took them with me to the beach
http://taravangent.kabkfinearts.nl/files/gimgs/th-32_8oo_v3.png
One had holes and the other didn't, so it seemed logical that they would have a relationship of some sort...?

Once the drawing was finished, layering wasn't as effective..

Switching the foreground-background order. Instead of curtain -> window -> ground -> bush -> wall -> tree -> shadow etc,... shadow -> tree -> bush -> ground -> window -> curtain
