My favorite holiday of the year is quickly approaching (Thanksgiving, DUH!). In my world, nothing beats the crisp cool air, warm apple pie and football on the couch post-feast with the fam. And, oh yeah, did I mention the meal?! Turkey, potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce has to be one of the best meals in existence.
Though I have never been one to see food as “art” (my fellow marlo-ites on the restaurant team are shaking their heads right now), I am loving what San Francisco-based artist Hannah Rothstein is doing with a T-Day spread this year. Rothstein’s collection titled, “How Famous Artists Would Plate Thanksgiving Meals,” envisions ten renowned artists’ interpretation of a Thanksgiving meal, from Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”, complete with swirled mashed potato and gravy sky…
…to Warhol’s provocative pop art.
Check out all of Hannah’s creations on her site: http://www.hrothstein.com/thanksgiving-special/.
Maybe Hannah’s prints will inspire you to create your own masterpiece this Turkey Day (that is, if you can wait that long to dig in!).
