John Miller’s Here in the Real World at Mary Boone Gallery

My memories of watching daytime TV Game Shows mostly involve being a kid who was home sick from school, or on summer vacation, because when else was I going watch them? What that means is that these memories of The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal are many decades in the past as this point, and yet they are quite clear and bring on a huge wave of fond nostalgia. This is probably why John Miller’s Here in the Real World, up now at the Mary Boone Gallery’s Chelsea location, resonated with me so strongly.

Here in the Real World features Miller’s Game Show Paintings (which he started painting in 1995) and his more recent series of reality TV personalities (started 2012), in which Miller selects images of people in purportedly uncontrived poses and paints them in a realist manner. Mary Boone’s cavernous room provides a perfect space for this show, which features many large scale canvases. Before I post more photos of the paintings however, I want to show you this:

Potato

Yes, that is a potato that was hanging out on the gallery’s front lobby carpet. Everybody wanted to know why there was a potato on the floor, and was it part of the show. And the answer is: I don’t know, but it is on a red carpet, so it must be important in some way.

Review: One Potato Two Potato Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips

Do you like chips? I sure do. One kind of chip I really enjoy is the Sweet Potato Chip, because they are so very delicious. I confess that when I see a bag or bowl of Terra Chips at a party, I hover around it and pick out all of the Sweet Potato Chips for myself. Because that is how I roll. I believe that is was at the recent Summer Fancy Food Show where I picked up a sample bag of One Potato Two Potato brand Sweet Potato Chips, and subsequently fell in love with this tasty and all natural snack.

Sweet Chips with Burger

In the above photo you can see these awesome Sweet Potato Chips, all crispy and delightful to the tongue, as they accompany a yummy Cheeseburger made by me for a meal I ate at home last Friday. I love these Chips!
