Christopher Boffoli – Edible Worlds
|Once again owning an exotic pet was proving to be |
nothing but trouble.
In New York Ansell and I visited several galleries. My favorite by far was the Winston Wachter Gallery, which had a solo show for Christopher Boffoli’s Edible Worlds.
|It didn't matter how much overtime was needed. The pancake |
producers were determined to catch up with their
orders before brunch.
“For this show, Boffoli features a series of crisp and vividly colored images. The viewer becomes voyeur in each captured moment and is privy to scenes of work, play, and conversation. Snapshots of saturated color and massive food items allow the miniatures who stand in Boffoli’s surreal scenes to come to life.
|With his history, no one would have believed it was an accident.|
This juxtaposition of scale has been inspired in party by the heavy use of this visual device in films and television from the 70’s and 80’s and the 18th century fable, Gulliver’s’ Travels. A wide range of human interaction is captured throughout this series within a dizzying array of produce and prepared staged foods.”
I loved this show and its art. I thought the images were fun and the little one-sentence stories added a whole story to the images. I also liked how colorful and fanciful the images were.
This was my favorite one, for obvious reasons! It was also Ansell's favorite because it involved scuba diving.
