Mum Said ‘Do the Dishwasher’

Oscar, Age 18

  • Painting
  • Oil paint on canvas board
  • A3 portrait

For this painting, I was greatly inspired by my everyday life and own home/interior spaces; I wanted to find a way to make mundane things, like a dishwasher, exciting for the viewer. I liked the idea of bringing attention to overlooked objects, showing them in a different light and giving them a personal narrative. I wanted to create a sense of intimacy, as though you are looking in on someone’s home.
