I thought about how fast and easy it is to do just about anything nowadays and how modernized life means we can have almost everything in seconds making us feel like we need it instantly. Fast food, quick food which can be ordered and cooked in minutes. Similarly, porn. Any person can pull up a porn site in seconds, I was thinking about this connotation whilst I was painting my watercolours using the form of a ‘Rustlers’ burger.
I modified them slightly to give me a better shape to work with
I wanted to create some really vibrantly coloured watercolours showing fast food with sexual connotations, to highlight the concept of how grabbing fast food has a correlation with porn sites and it all comes down to the ‘immediacy of pleasure’ in modernized life.
I wanted to incorporate patterns and colours which were bright and modern.I thought that the burger needed to keep it’s form but I wanted to play around with colour and composition. My inspiration for these pieces I used Judy Chicago’s ‘Dinner party’ plates to help with the design of my burgers and Georgia O’ Keefe’s colouring and formations of flowers and plants.
