Philadelphia based artist Kim Alsbrooks paints miniature portraits on trash – specifically, 17th and 18th century museum portraits on flattened beer cans, glass liquor bottles and discarded milk cartons. The inspiration behind My White Trash Family came from Kim’s frustration with witnessing the extreme disparities of class while living in the South. By juxtaposing regal portraits with common trash, she dispels the idea of historical social biases . . . at least in her world.
