Artist in the Gallery

Peter Anton

Sunday, January 12
3:00 pm
The Mansion

Peter Anton does trompe l’oeil sculptures, in a hyper-realist mode, of such foods of the seasons as watermelon for summer, pecan pie for winter, or a heart-shaped box of candies for Valentine’s Day. For Anton, the exemplary colors, textures, and taste of these items conjure up a vision of those times of year. The tradition of still life painting goes back hundreds of years, but these works are distinctly pop in flavor, because of their giant scale and iconic status as immediately recognizable images.
