Napkin Documentation in-Progress

Here are some of the napkins as they are arriving in Washington and being documented - enjoy - more photos will be added - not everyone's work is photographed yet and we have to add the captions so these images aren't labeled yet.

Also, congratulations to Io on her opening this weekend at the Baltimore Clayworks !

on their way

Oh, man, I am late with this submission, but six dinner napkins are on their way to Io. The pieces became a mini-series titled Dinner Napkin Dowry. Images of larger works were transposed to the center of vintage linens; text originated from traditional Spanish proverbs. It was a wild ride working through this process.

Bacon Butty Napkin (digital print on cotton, 16” by 16”, edition of four)

Really enjoyed participating with this brief. Napkins:- what an interesting medium to exhibit! Bacon Butty Napkin is a playfully informative napkin celebrating the British love for bacon sandwiches and Heinz tomato ketchup. Underlying the aesthetic of this napkin’s content are the concerns and issues regarding the ethics of meat production and social naivety as to the origins of our food stuffs. This is by no means a piece of vegetarianism, but rather an observation that whilst we should enjoy our food, we should also think respectfully and responsibly about our food sources.
