For Immediate Release: The Artist Sustainability Project Presents - The Red Herring

Coming Soon... Drawing attention to recession times the piece is called “The Red Herring: cé nest pas un a restaurant,” inspired by the Magritte painting, “This is not a pipe.” In a time when we are all talking about creating jobs, the work is a performative sculpture activated by the patrons, presented in a five-course restaurant style experience including video and live character actors.

The Red Herring takes us to the dinner table, a place that brings people together; an environment that can encourage some of the best creative solutions. As a visual artist who holds a deep love for food and cooking, I aim to alter the context of the restaurant experience through a visual free verse. By creating an opportunity to collaborate creatively with my community though both food and art I hope to reinvent modes of survival and shift perspectives about the current economic situation.

"Bad Luck" 84" x 79"



For those who are unfamiliar with my work I have included an image that inspired one of the prints gifted to The Hideaway Patrons this month. The life sized drawing from my "Love and War" series was recently on display in a solo show at the Flood Fine Art Center in Asheville, NC. If you would like to see this work in person, the drawing is being shown in Kansas City at the Kemper East 200 E. 44th Street Near KCAI until March.
