FEAST ! 23 Sandy Gallery, Portland Oregon, 2013
Cloudberries and Other Fruits was inspired by a vintage encyclopedia of fruits and berries and an estate sale cast-off of yellowed of index cards. This collection of hand-painted cards tucked in to a clamshell box is reminiscent of grandmother’s recipe box. However, the type-written text on the back of each colorful painting of berries and exotic fruits doesn’t list measurements and ingredients. Instead, found text evokes the poetry of longing and the desire to smell, touch, and taste.
Loose cards in a clamshell box. Acrylic paint, gouache, pencil and typewritten tex on vintage cards. Vintage and Yuzen papers. 5 x 3 inches. Unique edition.
