Art Is Food
by Ric Kasini Kadour
“You cannot pry apart the two chocolate sides of a Georgia O’Keefe painting and lick the creamy vanilla center. The rampant elements of a de Kooning do not make a nice stew. Do not smear Pollock on your organic buckwheat toast in the morning and wash it down with a cup of steaming hot Andy Warhol. Art is food. Our country is hungry.”
In 2006, Ric Kasini Kadour created the artist book Art Is Food, which is based on Kadour’s introduction to Art Town Meeting in Burlington, Vermont (February 2005). During the summer of 2006, Kadour illustrated the text. A hand-pulled screen print was made in Montreal, Quebec in August and September 2006.
In 2008, Kasini House Books also published a trade edition.
