The wishlist name can't be left blank


Ashleigh Sumner

2023 101 x 101 cm

Repurposed Nike and Puma shoe boxes, shredded photographs, mixed media, paint, spray paint, silkscreen and ink on wood panel finished in veneer.


These pieces are the latest in a series that is exploring the connection between consumerism and culture (inspired in part by how Warhol explored the same question with the Brillo and Campbell Soup Can paintings). Does culture drive consumerism or vice versa? These pieces are constructed from repurposed Nike and Puma show boxes with shredded photographs. These materials are layered on top of completed paintings underneath.  The title is a tongue and cheek ode to Agnes Martin’s line paintings.
