Pt Club

In 2008 I was approached by Fleur-de-Lis Design in Toronto, who were working on the Platinum Club at the Air Canada Center in Toronto, looking for food images with a fine art aesthetic. These below were chosen. Printed on Arches paper using the Piezographic process, they have a remarkable depth and richness. If you visit the Platinum Club website and try the 360° Tour you can see them on the walls, which is kinda cool.

These pieces showed first at the juried Toronto Outdoor Art Festival, then at Pentimento Gallery, and then at the 2010 First Canadian Place Summer Salon:

The highlights, for me, include Bill Pusztai's deep-focus black and white photographs of the veins and striations in vegetable matter (his scallion branches resemble diagrams of muscle groups, and his ginger root, pimpled as a teen forehead, is both leathery and soft)
