Garth and Pierre’s Geometric Vintage Food

Garth and Pierre are an artistic team based out of Washington state, for their series MENU they appropriated nostalgic imagery of restaurants, kitchens, and table settings to explore the perceptions and politics surrounding food. The artists use geometric shapes cut into the image by hand, leaving the viewer with a lace-like grid of highly graphic saturated colors that allude to a romanticized era that has long since passed.

    Genuine Question: How does cutting geometric shapes out of appropriated nostalgic imagery of restaurants, kitchens, and table settings explore the perceptions and politics surrounding food?

    i think LoveHate_Design asks a valid question. Nevertheless, I just love the way these look. From a purely aesthetic point of view they knock my socks off.
