Greener Grass

This piece 'Greener Grass' plays with the common understanding of this statement aiming to question the definitions of better or worse within the context of our environment.

 

This work suggests that the contrasting circumstances, belongings or situations always appear more desirable; living turf sprayed with chemical enduced pigment, an aesthetic presents but the outcome is in no way superior, the unnatural coating poisons the grass. It becomes ugly. The ideas stems from the artists experience of living in different locations, rural and urban. The artist compares artificial and natural to experiments with the interpretation of aesthicis to formulate questions relating to the natural functionality of the environment.
