About the Artwork

This painting is one of 15 paintings exploring gift wrapping. These trompe l’oeil paintings, which depict gifts wrapped and decorated in various colours and styles – including traditional Korean gift wrappings - are meant to explore the gift of consumerism and the excess that has found its way into cultures worldwide. Ultimately each of these paintings aim to create a place for contemplating the changes that have befallen the modern culture of gift giving, particularly the culture of gift giving within Korea. Korean gifts are given during holidays such as the Lunar New Year and Korean Thanksgiving, to family and friends when visiting, and when congratulating others during the opening of new businesses. Traditionally, gifts might have been wrapped in reusable materials, and the care that went into packaging the gift was as important as the gift itself. But with westernisation this has changed, and a culture of disposability has eroded many traditions. Consumerism is the gift we have all been given, whether we like it or not.
