Upstream People Gallery Award

These were my pieces in the 10th Annual Contemporary Art Juried Online International Art Exhibition at the Upstream People Gallery, 2008. Here's the direct link from their archives.

Enjoy the pictures!!

Juror's Statement:
" ANTHONY FOO is an accomplished ceramicist. All of his pieces are strong and significant in today’s contemporary ceramic art. “Daily Assault” is a dramatization of the effects of a daily bombardment. Dealing again with the ovoid spaces, “Empty Calories” interestingly handles the idea of poor nourishment in some of our food choices today. Another striking piece is “Forest Gone”. And “Last Boat Out” continues with his play upon the circular element."

Made In America, 2009

Oversized set of Chinese fast-food take out boxes, fortune cookies and chopsticks. 18"W x 21"H x 18"D

A fast-food take out scene commonly seen here in America is totally unheard of in Asia. These items were intentionally made extra large and out of proportion to comment on how food is viewed in the US. The entire arrangement is colored white to drive home the point that this happens only in America. In addition, sticking a pair of chopsticks in rice is a big no-no in Asian culture. It is regarded as extremely rude and vulgar.

High fire sculpture clay, natural bamboo chopsticks, acrylic paint.
