NEW PRINT AVAILABLE @ SUNDANCE ART STUDIO

“RKT” (Rice Krispies Treats) is a full sized (12 x 12 in.) high quality reproduction of my 2008 oil-on-panel painting of a classic American “homemade” snack which has also been sold locally at the Sundance Deli and BYU Bakery for decades. This image features a pyramid of the familiar, crunchy, gooey blocks, referencing imagery like Utah’s desert landscape, the ancient Egyptian pyramids and the modern “USDA Food Pyramid” which is found on food packages like cereal boxes, etc. Food pyramids have served as a visual motif in my work since 2005.
