This series of paintings on panel explore the container next to my kitchen sink where I place my food scraps before they are taken out to the compost pile. This is an observance and exploration of my own diet, what I call edible vs. inedible, and the amount of food waste I generate. This series is influenced by three genres and styles in art history - read more and see the full series.
“In my opinion, the compost paintings Mark Granlund makes are not only well crafted and composed, but they also tell a story about how we eat. Mark is able to make art from the edge of his sink with as much heart and thought as any contemporary artist does with sweeping landscapes of farm fields." - Brett O.

Description from Merchant:
For Paintings: Many of the still lifes of food are painted on cradled wood panels. The landscapes and all other paintings are painted on stretcheded 10 duck canvas. I make my own stretchers and wood panels in a wood shop attached to my studio. The wood substrate is made of pine or poplar and is cross-grained to prevent warping. The canvas and panels each receive three layers of gesso before being painted. After completion, each painting receives a protective varnish. The canvases, generally, have the images wrapped around the sides. I make my own canvases and panels to assure that, if framed and displayed properly, my paintings will last for generations.
