Gelatine Paintings

Mike Bouchet has explored the materiality and aesthetics of ultra-processed foodstuffs in previous series such as in the Colachrome paintings, the Burger series or Energy Log and Energy Fog sculptures, again negotiates our perception of these culturally charged materials. For the Gelatine paintings he works with candied gelatine that give the works a range of metallic colors and surfaces which then are cast or poured onto panels, table constructions or blue carpet.
