Gallery Mondays: On Ripeness and Rot

kimberly witham ripeness and rot

Is it still hunting season?

I saw this rather interesting piece of art last month at Last Rites Gallery in Midtown. The piece is part of Kimberly Witham’s On Ripeness and Rot series, which contrasts fresh fruits with dead animal carcasses.

How’s that for morbid?

It’s crazy how she combines the two so gracefully, almost as they appear in nature. Take away the bowl and you have an innocent deer against a white background with berries dangling from a branch above her.
