Christopher Boffoli
Big Appetites

A series of images by Seattle-based photographer Christopher Boffoli, Big Appetites features tiny, hand-painted figures photographed against real food environments. The colorful images are designed with top notes of surprise and humor, but also examine America’s dysfunctional relationship with food: our portion sizes, overreliance on factory farming, and gravitation toward food spectatorship.

Located in the reception space where guests mingle and meet before meals, the Greenhouse Gallery exhibits the works of up-and-coming and established artists who work with culinary themes. Providing artists with a complimentary space to show their work not only enhances the overall ambience of the room during events, it’s also in keeping with the Foundation’s mission to celebrate, preserve, and nurture America’s culinary heritage and diversity. Past exhibits have featured mouthwatering food photography, romantic watercolors of mealtime still lifes, and exuberant mixed-media collages.
