A hyperrealist clear and black glass ornament stands out on a white ground surrounded by a border covered with agitated black lines and specks of red. The object’s bulbous body combines elements of a vase design with components of a candelabra. The tulip-shaped candle holders adorning the four twisted glass arms, suggest a lighting functionality. The absence of candlesticks, however, precludes a definite identification of this object’s role.
For Robin Megannity painting is a means to tangibly explore a fast-changing society, with many uncertainties. As in being satisfied, Megannity’s work often uses interrelated objects to investigate contemporary anxieties and dogma. The depicted objects can be perceived as products, museum artifacts, sculptures or as props in ambiguous scenarios. The viewer is invited to create their own narrative through identifying references and visual cues.
Megannity has recently started using 3D modelling software to develop digital models for use as reference images. By translating virtual objects and scenarios into painting, the artist disrupts the polished aesthetic of digital product design, introducing failures, hesitations and affectations that come with the process.
