Junk Food as Art
May 20th, 2009 by plumpdumpling

One Saturday a few weeks ago, I was invited to Gina Minichino’s gallery opening on the Upper East Side by a completely random stranger. I would’ve been happy to attend no matter what but had no choice in the matter when I found out that the subject of her paintings is JUNK FOOD.

And I would’ve been happy to attend no matter what but was especially glad that I did when Dr. Boyfriend and I arrived at the Allan Stone Gallery and found out that her stuff is really good. Like, the so-real-they-look-like-photos type of good that you know you could never do yourself. For example:

She sold this while we were there. Whoo!

Peter Anton was sharing the space with her and was just as exciting. We started with his stuff and worked our way back to Gina’s, so I ended up getting exponentially more photos of his pieces before the place closed for the evening. (Sorry, Gina!)

Kamran and I truly believe we’re the only people in the world who love circus peanuts.
This alone has kept us. together for 2+ years.

Butt cherry!

I would totally have eaten this right off the floor had it been real.

So, yeah, the show is definitely worth seeing, as if you couldn’t tell from the photos. And luckily for you, it runs for another month still.

    I made the terrible mistake of reading this post before lunch.

    Now I want nothing – absolutely NOTHING – but Twinkies for lunch.

      Wrecking your diet and bringing you down to my level since 2006.

      Agreed. When I make my first million, these are MINE.

      Then we have to stick together. Whenever Kamran finally brings me to California, we will feast until our stomachs bleed orange.
