Oil Palm Pool

Art | 2020
Oil Palm Pool is the second concept in a developing series of works that examines the impact of the oil palm industry on the environment, the wealth it has created, the destruction it has caused, and its overall cultural influence on our daily lives.

Classical forms and materials combine with pops of color and shape to achieve a familiar yet haunting environment. Bright palms and ferns surround a pool of red liquid to create a surreal visual environment that jars the senses and upends our understanding of the classical luxurious pool and spa.

It’s this contrast between traditional and modern, nature, and commercialization that creates a memorable experience and an opportunity to question the value that ceaseless palm oil production has had in our world.
