Menu, hand-punched pigment prints, 22"x30" unframed and 28.5"x36" framed, ed 1/1
Appropriating nostalgic imagery of restaurants, kitchens, and table settings, Amundson and Gour explore the perceptions and politics surrounding food. The artists superimposed patterns of various geometric shapes onto images from antiquated cookbooks and culinary magazines, with each pattern's shape mirroring contours within the primary image. To give the prints a subtle depth, they were perforated by hand to create a lace-like grid. Highly saturated colors allude to a romanticized era that has passed, but is undeterminable.
