Quote

It's so important when you are young to fill yourself with culture, art, music, movies, fashion, travels. It's fuel for life. -Milan Vukmirovic

Jeroen Swolfs

These photographs made by Jeroen Swolfs are really complete stories. Love it that photographs tell stories on there own.

Pink Project

Artist Statement


The "Pink Projectts" are an exploration of the color pink, a culturally loaded color that has been projected onto girls and women. The "Pink Projects" are made up of thousands of inexpensive product that are either produced or packaged in the color pink. These pink plastic objects --Fake nails, tampon applicators, hair clips, makeup, cleaning products, mirrors, baby pacifiers -- seem to be trying to imitate and perfect the body, perfect nature.


In these installations, the discarded items assume new value and meaning, showing the marketing of femininity and how our culture infantalizes women.

Green Piece; lawn

Artist Statement


"Lawn" is made up found green plastic objects laid out in patches of greens resembling a suburban lawn. Green is a color that represents nature. It is interesting to see what is mass produced in green plastic and how, once again, color is used as a marketing tool. Almost anything you can imagine that has a relationship to nature, good or bad, can probably be found in green plastic: fly swatters, a turtle shaped sandbox/pool, real and toy Army junk, yard tolls and furniture, Astroturf, weed killer, dinosaurs and monsters, bug spray, plastic plants, etc. We think of the lawn as a natural phenomenon, but really, it is a man-made thing. It is said that the lawn is the biggest agricultural crop in the country. "Lawn" pushes that artificiality to an extreme, finding the horrible beauty in formal squares of discarded trash, each object carrying the weight of its individual meaning, as crucial and profuse as a blade of grass.

The Garden

Artist Statement


In recent years, I have become increasingly interested in environment and the plastic nature, plastic flowers and plastic procreation of our consumer culture. "The Garden," is an artificial nature one can enter. A quilt of floral dresses covers the ceiling and walls, creating a canopy for the garden growing beneath. Floors are flooded with blossoms and bunny rabbits, rugs of stuffed animals, skinned and sewn together. A floral love seat sits among clusters of consumer commodities that seem to have grown over every square inch of surface. Lamps are encrusted with plastic daisies. Tall bunny rabbits centaurs smothered in fake flowers and stand guard. "The Garden" centers around ideas of artificial beauty and images associated with fertility and funerary rites.
