A satirical glance at mans obsessive quest for luxury. The lobster is bound by 24 karat golden bands seemingly stripped of its true purpose, questions the ignorance of purpose in our own lives.
The monochromatic pallet simplifies the form allowing a deeper exploration of the subject matter. This causes the viewer to focus first on a photographic representation, before a closer inspection reveals the true technique. This fine art technique takes hours of intense concentration before a final gilding of 24 karat gold leaf is applied.
