The Beauty of Destruction No. 49
Oil on wood panel
24 x 36 inches
Juert Asejo’s The Beauty of Destruction No. 49, a 24 x 36-inch oil on wood painting comes from his ongoing investigation of the concept of beauty and its influence in contemporary society. Juert created No. 49 for Electric Youth as an attempt to cross examine the two overlapping concepts – beauty and the mindset of feeling forever young. Using his signature technique of marrying pastel and vivid hues, and the use of a palette knife to add breadth and depth to his pieces, Juert painted No. 49, a dream-like body radiating with youthful energy.
