Hanging Fruit

Chinatown Orange paint, and artificial banana trees
2016
This site-specific installation is part of the Andy Warhol Museum's "Exposure" series, where artists are invited to show in the museum store's window display, mirroring Warhol’s early experiences showing work in New York City. For this installation, Hanging Fruit, I painted artificial banana trees Chinatown Orange. Brought into the context of The Warhol, a commercial juxtaposition emerges, from the mass-produced paint colors to the Walmart-bought banana trees. Hanging above, around, and within the installation, like specters of the past, are the various incarnations of Warhol’s banana, the very bananas I sought to avoid in my early paintings. The total installation seeks to create a unique experience that blends awe and alienation.
