Modern Groceries: Modern Midwestern Meals

During the month of February, ART ON ARMITAGE window gallery will present an exhibition of 3 extra large photographic still-lifes created by Stephanie Dean, picturing the particularly Midwestern Meals her friends and acquaintances have eaten. Foods such as meatloaf, mac & cheese (with tuna) and apple pie with a "special" topping are treated with the classical lighting and formal compositions usually associated with traditional Dutch still life painting. Each piece is named after the person who regularly eats the meals, and is a natural evolution from Dean's famous "Modern Groceries" series.  ©Stephanie Dean 2012.
