Victoria Mimiaga — Food In Plastic II: The Masters

Revisioning old masters with plastic wrapped around the food – to make plastic visible again

Opening Reception:
Wednesday, September 12, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Over the past decade, Victoria Mimiaga‘s paintings have explored the pervasive, excessive, and often needless use of plastic in our modern world.

She has found that plastic has become more and more ubiquitous. So ubiquitous in fact that we often fail to see it.

To make plastic visible, she has wrapped plastic around the bowl of mangos in Gauguin’s To Tahitian Women, painted a clear plastic zip lock bag around the green apple in Magritte’s Son of Man and painted bags for the tortillas in Diego Rivera’s The Grinder.

The series continues to portray food in plastic in iconic old master paintings. When plastic becomes visual again, we can begin the many conversations about its reflective aesthetic, it’s role in our society, and our responsibilities regarding its use.

This exhibit is on display in the Friends of Marin Center Gallery, in the Marin Center Exhibit Hall.
