vegetables for breakfast

Dear Friends,

I'm happy to let you know that I'm in a group exhibition opening this Saturday at Mountain Fold Gallery in Manhattan. I'll be premiering my first ceramic sculptures, and I'm in the great company of three other wonderful artists, so it should be an exciting show. If you're around, come check it out!

Still life. Everyday. Color. Morning. Life. Art. Vegetables. Armchairs. TVs. Newspapers. Vase. Home. Wallpaper. Breakfast. Joy. Craft. Summer. Friends. Hot. Cityscape.

Mountain Fold is pleased to announce the opening of "Vegetables for Breakfast," a group show of mutated art objects. It is about summer in the city and joyful subversion. The pieces in the show are hybrids. Some are artworks that serve as decoration or furniture, while others began as daily objects, but have been deprived of utility and turned into works of art. The pieces all retain some element of shape or function, but have mutated from their original purpose. The artwork becomes companion. Like living in a colorful, lucid, daydream.

Margaret Lee will display ultra realistic vegetables, cakes and candles on the wall. Joshua Nathanson presents a custom-made chair, specially designed wallpaper and 3D wall sculptures. Shabd Simon-Alexander will exhibit a ceramic vase and stones on tiled pedestals, all equally covered in blotches of color, blurring object and function. Antoine Catala organized this exhibition; he will present a series of painted TVs switched on to your favorite channels; paintings with an ever changing background.

Gallery hours: Wednesday through Saturday 1:00- 7:00pm or by appointment.
June 20 - July 18, 2009
