Ohhhh, that's gross.

"The Cocktail Party" by Sandy Skoglund, 1992

What makes this a cool piece:
  • The bright palette and composition attracted me.
  • Upon closer examination i realized all the 'little orange squiggles' were actually cheese puffs, which I think are the most abhorrent snack food to come into existence.
  • The composition and selection of models intrigued me. why are the four in the background only dressed in food and not covered head to toe like their companions? Are they all turning their attention to the puff-suited man in the back of the room? The narrative possibilities are endless.
