Greetings Art Lovers,
Last week, the UGallery team went vegan. We enjoyed nut cheese and other veggie delights at a local restaurant and that is one reason why this week’s Paperwork is “Meat Hooks” by Jonelle Summerfield.
Unlike the busy dishes we received at lunch, Jonelle Summerfield’s “Meat Hooks” is simple, clean-cut, and raw. Jonelle uses muted colors and a drybrush effect to create an endearing charm that borders on the grotesque. Inspired by Van Gogh’s “The Potato Eaters,” “Meat Hooks” depicts the mundane scene of Jonelle’s grandmother cutting a ham with her tough hands.
Despite the subject matter, this print suits any diet. “Meat Hooks” exposes a universal desire for authenticity. For Jonelle, “We are most ourselves when we are indoors at our own dinner tables or working in our kitchens.”
“Meat Hooks” invites us to tear down façades and connect with inner appetites. You won’t know if you like it till you try it.
