Installation view of "No Artificial Colours Or Flavours" by Natasha Grenke, Argyle Fine Art, May 11 - June 4
The exhibition consists of 72 watercolour studies arranged in a grid format that feature juice boxes as its subject matter.
"By adding vibrant colours and themes of nostalgia, I want to delight my viewers by offering playfulness and humour to reflect on their own experiences, focusing on the small moments of everyday life that are often overlooked. I started the year drawing my used juice boxes that I had been saving for months. This became my juice box series, No artificial Flavours or Colours.
It started off as a simple study of observing colours and light, but soon turned into an obsession. As I continued to draw, I noticed how much waste was accumulating and how unhealthy my little habit was becoming. Drawing each juice box shows me how our society has such a selective vision and fails to recognize how our habits contribute to so much waste and pollution."
Portrait of the Artist, Natasha Grenke, 2019
"Society is addicted to products that claim to be healthy but are harmful to our bodies and our planet. Through a colourful and fun portrayal of repetition and time based work, No Artificial Flavours or Colours encourages the viewer to have a more conscious lifestyle.”
-Natasha Grenke, 2019
