This sculpture is a satirical towards Anti-Consumerism and Anti-Capitalism of Modern Life, the rich verses the poor. The range was inspired during my studies at Art School, in which I was experience financial difficulties. It uses repetitive Can's, similar to that of Andy Warhol's Soup Cans, of the Pop Art Movement. The Cans were the cheapest I could obtain, typically Soup or Tomato Cans, with their Labels removed, and replaced with Digital Labels with the words 'Vincent's Back to Basics' with a Satirical Title and 'Consume After June 2012'. The Can's were purchased in 2009 are stamped to the bottom with an Expire Date of March 2012, and not to be Consumed after this date! Since 2012 the Cans have deteriorated, indicating that we (humans and animals) all have an expiry date, just like the Cans, We are Can's too! The Cans are made of stainless steel and reflections can be seen in them, just like Jeff Koons work, but this has now deteriorated by Rust!
Since I've finished this work, I've found a similar work by Simon Patterson, who uses a similar repetitive Can's with altered Labels.
