Cruel Birthday By Lindsey de Ovies
Artist Lindsey de Ovies worked over the course of eleven years sculpting the works that make up Food For Thought, which opened last night at Mallick Williams & Co Gallery. Both absurdly humorous and subtly disturbing, de Ovies sculptures of anthropomorphic raw chickens, nail-studded Birthday cakes and oversized pharmaceuticals delicately displayed on cake trays represent the artist’s turmoil with regard to various dysfunctional family relationships. The fact that many of the most stressful family gatherings take place around the holiday banquet table is no accident. And being that we’re already less than a week away from the official holiday season kick off here in the states, it’s surely the perfect time to check out this exhibit!
Food For Thought by Lindsey de Ovies will be on Exhibit Through January 18th 2012, at Mallick Williams & Co. Gallery, Located at 150 11th Avenue (between 21st and 22nd Streets), New York, New York 10011.
