Now – 9/30: Nada es Imposible

Duke Windsor’s work will be exhibited in a special cross-border collaborative project facilitated by the city of Tijuana and El Instituto Municipal de Arte y Cultura (IMAC).

Contemporary Culinary

Today, in the 21st Century, ordinary objects from the kitchen, like condiment bottles in the sunlight, or even very stylized paintings of desserts, as in the works by Wayne Thiebaud, suggest a new approach to depicting our culinary tastes. As the tradition of art flourishes and technology advances, the artist will continue to explore this desire to record our culinary tastes from the artist’s palette to our palate.

An American Food Icon

The hamburger is a simple meal whose exact origin is unknown. In the early 1900s, a cook from a small town in Texas placed a Hamburg steak between two slices of bread, thus creating an instant meal to be carried out by a guest who was in a hurry and could not sit to eat. Although I continue developing gilding techniques, I often refer to these works for inspiration. To complete this icon of American taste, I felt gold leaf was an appropriate tribute to the delicious hamburger. 

Windsor’s gold-gilded hamburger paintings will be on display at Galeria Espacio 5 in Tijuana, with a reception for “Nada es Imposible” on June 30th, from 5-6pm. The exhibit will run through September 30, 2023.
