Convenient Vanities: Cake and Ice Cream | Mini Installment | Cheryl Harper

CONVENIENT VANITIES: CAKE AND ICE CREAM

Date: 2014

Medium: Wood, Stoneware, Applique Quilting, Butterflies

Size: 24″ x 27″ x 22″ x 9″

Description: This work combines an awareness of convenient access to foods with little nutritional value with the concept of Vanitas, a term for the inevitable fate that awaits us all. My local 7-Eleven inspired me with its’ treasures of ice cream novelties and Tastycakes. This food themed sculpture was inspired by Michelle Obama’s “Healthy Food” campaign.
