This is a painting using Medium oil on panel. The overall message that this artist tries to put across focuses on consumer consumption (McCracken 34). The world is fast changing and there is an appraisal of the consumer consumption that is undermining the environmental resource base. It is intensifying how human activity is impacting the natural world negatively.
As a consumer, there are a variety of products that I have to use for my daily upkeep. I frequently visit the supermarket to get products from different countries for my children. The market for their products and foods is quite enormous. The extent of our consumption, the purpose of extracting the resources and creating the product will have a direct impact on the amount of waste and extent of pollution of the environment. This is a factor that I have ignored for quite a longtime. When I look at Mathias Duwel painting, it gives me a clear understanding of the situation at hand. If this is not corrected, there is a possibility of environmental degradation at the expense of consumer consumption.
The paintings of Matthias Duwel and his paper works discover how suburban slump, over-profusion and capitalistic gluttony lead to tragedy. Duwel usually states that his work has been a direct response to his environment. When Duwel moved from New York City to Tucson in the year 2004, he was enlightened to know about developments that took place in the suburban areas and the massive amount of houses that have been repeated in structures. His moving from New York diverted his attention from the deteriorating urban environments and concentrated more on how nature is being destructed by consumers.
