Open: 12: 00-18: 00 

Closed days: Sundays, Mondays

My two-dimensional work focuses on the consumption of creativity in today's mass consumer society. While clothing and food are mass-produced, supplied, and sometimes discarded, we also mass-produce and discard creativity in order to encourage users to consume it. Historically, my paintings are part of the Pop Art lineage of collage and consumerism, such as the Merz paintings of Schwitters. Drawing on these precedents, I create paintings that defend the consumed creative against the backdrop of contemporary industrial and advertising relationships. I cite logos and characters that have been discarded by society or have become obsolete over time, and at the same time, I put barcodes in the foreground as contemporary icons of consumption, as an irony to the never-ending consumption of creativity. This irony and criticism is the mission of my work, and at the same time it is my statement to this age.
