Luxury chestnuts

Glamour pearls I & II

This series of works originated in Poland, where in 2017 I made a large, 60 kilo curtain of chestnuts collected from nature. In this environmental installation, I wanted to bring elements of everyday views up to the front of peoples eyes – making it valuable and unique. I wanted to stop the viewer in front of the beautiful nature.

Later I attached the chestnuts into my paintings. I made a gold layer for them, and brought up the same theme again – with luxury.
