This 2010 painting series, titled ‘The Feast’, is the work of Vancouver based artist Nicola Tibbetts. It makes me hungry… and then a little bit sick. The pieces above are, in this order, Preparation of the Feast; The Feast; The Remains of the Feast. Here are her words about this body of work:
“This is a series of paintings based on an imaginary banquet. My inspiration for this theme was the lavish, ostentatious feasting rituals of the Middle Ages. These paintings illustrate the course of a feast from its very beginnings as a lush accumulation of the ingredients, to its final stages, where bones and dishes pile high and only crumbs remain.”
Okay, I need to lie down. Happy Friday.
