18” x 24”
Marble, smalti, gold
and tomato soup
My boy Ajax originally had the idea to do a piece like this for
the "Pretty Trashed" pothole art series. I never got around to it. When the idea came up a second time as a commission I took that as a sign that it must be done.
A healthy portion of Campbell's Tomato soup was mixed into
the artwork's mortar so years from now viewers will be in the presence of the actual subject matter of the piece. Mmm Mmm good indeed.
