Kidd Murray (b.1994) explores themes of consumerism and materialism, and depicts a

natural environment which has been ruled by both, rendering it obsolete. These imagined

places are adorned with diamantes, vibrant colours and manicured landscapes, a nod to

materialism and impractical and harmful beauty standards. A focal point in most of

Murray’s work is the glowing green worm, which represents a toxic consumer. In some

pieces the worm can be seen feeding off of fruits and plants, and in others it appears to

be struggling to find its place in a superficial, dysfunctional world.
