Artist: Fred Meurice
Title: Bottle in the bag
Technique: Plexiglass / mixed media
The artwork “Bottle in the Bag”, created by artist Fred Meurice, is a piece of plexiglass and mixed media art with dimensions of 30x25x6cm. The piece is a limited edition with a run of 6 pieces. The artwork features the image of a Nr5 perfume bottle within a bag, with a colorful and vibrant image of a gorilla at the center.
The use of plexiglass and mixed media provides texture and visual depth to the piece, allowing different elements to be seen and appreciated. The choice of a gorilla image can be seen as a critique of the way brands use images of wild animals in their advertising and how animals are often seen as objects of consumption.
The vibrant colors surrounding the gorilla create a dynamic visual effect, emphasizing the central image. The choice of theme, a Nr5 perfume bottle within a bag with the image of a gorilla, suggests a connection between fashion, popular culture, and nature.
The artwork is a reflection on the relationship between fashion, art, and nature. The choice of a gorilla image can be seen as a critique of how society treats animals and the importance of preserving nature. However, the interpretation of the artwork can vary depending on the observer’s perspective. The piece is open to different readings and can be seen as a reflection on the nature of art and how it can be interpreted in distinct ways.
