VANITAS – Working with Rust
For several years now, Frank Rosenzweig has been working with the medium of rust. Employing a range of techniques, he uses rust as a symbol of transience. His subjects stand in sharp contrast to the rust: youth, beauty, health. Fleeting moments that make up our existence. This is a fresh and contemporary context for the topic of classical, traditional Vanitas painting.
Vanitas: [lat. Empty semblance, inanity, vanity]
