FOR SALE: Perfection

FOR SALE: Perfection

Stuart John Cook

Each panel is a combination of painting and allowing some of the original imagery from the ‘sale’ sign to emerge through the paint. We seem to be obsessed with the idea that everything is 'For Sale'. Be it land, education, status, appearance and spiritual salvation. For Sale Perfection is divided up as close as I could to the perfect ratio, 1.618. It represents the concept of dividing up land into “perfect” amounts for one person to own, to fence and to create their own ideal world on. The idea of taking land from indigenous people and imposing European measurements to create ownership or the notion that someone can own land to mine. Perfection also reflects the idea of buying perfect physical human form through surgery or skin or teeth whitening etc. That perfection can be purchased.
