Lot 388 - Kidd Murray - Hi
Oil paint on gesso ground
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust.
Kidd Murray (b.1994) explores themes of consumerism and materialism, and depicts a natural environment which has been ruled by both, rendering it obsolete. These imagined places are adorned with diamantés, vibrant colours and manicured landscapes, a nod to materialism and impractical, harmful beauty standards. An inhabitant of this world, the glowing green worm, is used to represent a toxic consumer. It can be seen feeding off of vivacious fruit and plants, struggling to find its place in a superficial, dysfunctional world that has only one agenda - beauty.
