April 2017 @ FEAST Gallery, Fayetteville, AR
DINNER presented an amalgamated version of a 16th century Dutch banquet still-life within a salon style display. Objects along the walls included mainly portraiture based on historical art references and secondary cartoon characters from the 80s and 90s. Wall works ranged in material from soft-sculpture busts made from sewn fabric and house paint, to framed graphite and acrylic drawings, to found figurines, cheaply reproduced plaster and ceramic cast busts, and flea market finds. Guests were asked to join the artist in eating and drinking, and were presented with 'conversation starters' to discuss over the meal.
