Frame of Reference: Consuming Good Taste

from the Series: The Deceiver and The Deceived

Frame wall sculpture constructed from recycled materials specifically tin cans and vintage steel dollhouses, aluminum rivets/ The back view is shown below.

This is one of my favorite pieces in this series. It looks like the frame is coming apart. If you recognize the reproduction of a Renoir painting on the tin cans does it mean you have good taste, or does it mean the food inside the can tastes good?

16.25" height x 18" width x 4.50 " depth

Private Collection


The back of every wall artwork is interesting and irreverent collage of images from recycled tin cans.  I think this comes from my jewelry background where the back is considered an important part of the overall impression of the artwork.
