Two Can : Kitchen Mania

“I put all the things I like into my pictures. The things – so much the worse for them; they just have to put up with it.” Picasso

    As I put it in the introduction to my “Kitchen Mania” series “… I present to you the cast of characters in my kitchen fantasies”. I’m not sure when I first started to see figures etc. in the various implements in my kitchen but I knew that once I had recognised this tendency I would have to do something to exorcise these troubling apparitions. This series is the result…

    This particular image here was something of a no brainer, the image just leapt out. I have no excuse for the rather inane and puerile title other than that I have an inexplicable liking for such puns. Still, the image was a winner in one of ArtSlant’s Monthly Juried Showcases. To this day I rather wonder why…
