Artist: Diederik van Apple
Title: Scrooge Duck Express
Technique: Aluminum / high gloss resin
The artwork “Scrooge Duck Express” created by artist Diederik van Apple is a unique piece that uses modern art techniques to create an impressive visual impact. Measuring 150x95cm, it is made of aluminum and high gloss resin.
The piece portrays the famous character Scrooge McDuck as the background of an American Express credit card, in a reference to the culture of consumerism and capitalism. The use of the Disney character in this context suggests that in our society, money often becomes more important than life itself, and that the pursuit of profit can be a form of imprisonment.
The combination of aluminum and high gloss resin creates a mirrored effect that enhances the depth of the artwork, giving the impression that the image of Scrooge McDuck is floating in an infinite space. The edition of “Scrooge Duck Express” is limited to only 10 pieces, which adds exclusivity and value to the artwork.
