Political Calculations

As a young artist the idea of community seemed to fill the air around my work. Ideas moved freely from studio to studio and seemed to flow out into the street beyond the walls. Sometimes pointed, sometimes subtle, bringing life to the ideas was up to the artist. Every idea was up for review, stand it on its head and turn it around.

Somehow artists had been documenting phenomena of community long before I ever found a box of colours and felt the need to use them. I found an image created by Pieter Bruegel the Elder in the sixteen hundreds of a wedding and noticed some characters carrying pies to the table of a wedding party. I turned the image into a vignette within a one colour lithograph. What could be better than coming together around food?

Maybe coming together around food with art.
