'Fake Roses' by Tom Putman at Moira, Utrecht

Everyday objects are a source of inspiration for Putman’s work. He is fascinated by how the function of such objects determine its appearance and perception. This inextricably link between observation and functionality makes it difficult to purely look at the formal qualities of everyday objects, such as their shape, color and material, without having associative thoughts about what you can do with the object. Putman tries to disrupt these associations and interpretations of everyday objects by deforming and adapting recognizable figurative elements. Nothing is what is seems. 
Specifically within this exposition is Putman blurring the line between what is real and what is fake – what is genuine and what is artificial.
