Yes, it’s a brand new photo! Sweet Feast at the House of Pink Delights was created for a food themed group show in Los Angeles opening in mid-October. I had a lot of fun creating this piece, envisioning a delightful restaurant scene where diners are served a very special delicacy — kewpie heads stewed in a savory broth of ice cream, pie and cake. Mmmmmmmm!! And your wait staff for the evening? Why — of course! — the presidents of the United States! It’s Benihana meets the Oval Office.
On the right side of the photo you see the kewpie pantry. Fresh, raw, kewpie heads, each the visage of cute, cuddly mischief. John Adams oversees the pantry, handing off the choicest cuts to his fellow heads of state who march to the bubbling cauldron at the center of the House of Pink Delights, where smiling kewpie heads bob amidst the sweet treats.
On the left, Harry Truman marches a well done entree to a pair of enraptured diners.
How would you like your kewpie head prepared? Pink? Red? Or candy coated Green?
More information about the exhibit and the special framing treatment given to this piece coming soon!
