ColorOrgy – Various Works

Investigating the process of expectations, ColorOrgy explores the relationship of daily life with popular culture and mass media. Using clean lines and brilliant color theories to invoke nostalgia, he subtly asks the viewer to reflect on what lies beneath the surface using their own memories. Blending the aesthetics of middle class values with provocative imagery, ColorOrgy challenges everyday subject matter.

His paintings are characterized by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of middle-class mentality in which recognition plays an important role. By using popular themes such as sexuality, family structure and violence, he makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, they seem typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing. ColorOrgy parodies mass media and exaggerates formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, creating evocative and absurd moments that are not part of a narrative thread. The drama unfolds elsewhere and the images become a memory of an event that will never take place.
