Huge juicy hamburgers, served with precious gold, tempt the eyes of those visiting the Oceanside Museum of Art!
I said gold?
The hamburger paintings and a sculpture, by San Diego artist Duke Windsor, are made to shine with the application of gold leaf. He was inspired by the gilt religious icons in the collection of Balboa Park’s Timken Museum. (Would that make these hamburgers secular icons?)
This savory exhibition of rather peculiar still lifes is titled Duke Windsor: Nothing’s Impossible.
When you’re an artist, indeed all things are possible. Even a luscious golden hamburger fit for a king!
I wonder . . . did that butterfly land on lunch during a picnic? Or does it symbolize something in particular?
Better place your order soon. The fast food will expire next weekend, when this cool exhibition ends!
