“My White Trash Family” Paintings on Discarded Beer Cans by Artist Kim Alsbrooks

kimalsbrooks-whitetrash-01

For the past ten years Philadelphia-based artist Kim Alsbrooks has been painting miniature portraits on trash. Her series “My White Trash Family” began when she became interested in historical biases in art, and specifically portraits painted during the watercolor on ivory era (17th-18th century).

Alsbrooks finds trash that has already been flattened on the street, and chooses a portrait to fit each specific piece of trash. She gessoes them, draws the image in graphite, paints with oils and varnishes.

Have a look at a selection of her paintings below.
