Convenient Vanities: Tea Time | Mini Installment | Cheryl Harper


Date: 2014

Medium: Wood, Stoneware, Applique Quilting, Acrylic Paint and Xerox

Size: 60″ x 27″ x 22″

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. In the supermarket, parents pick up a cardboard package in the refrigerated aisle, a “Lunchable” for example, for their children, that I have elevated to a deconstructed formal tea.
