At Pool we recently launched the second edition of our iPad app. For those that are iPad-enabled it is available for free on the iTunes store. For my contribution this time I looked at a lot of painting references and then went back into the studio and started smashing things.
Taking a visual cue from the paintings of the Dutch old masters, the traditional still life themes of vanitas and the brevity of life meet a climatic end in this work. Rather than the slow and inevitable decay, there is a frozen instant where this symbolic world is ripped apart.
