TALAVERA POTTERY SET
$560.00 | 3 pieces |
This ceramic set of three fast food containers, finished in the famous Talavera style, comes from the celebrated Mexican artist Ana Gomez. Part of a wider exploration into contemporary eating habits and their conflict with traditional values, the pieces inspire reflection with their ironic, humorous and poignant design. An important collection in contemporary Latin American art, the set addresses pressing cultural issues.
In this set Ana Gomez explores through novel means a post-war consumerist society in which consumption is synonymous with happiness; disposability defines modernity and the adoption of new practices fulfills the illusion of progress. These three tenets have shaped contemporary cultures around the world and have impacted traditional practices, particularly those of eating. Finely crafted ceramic reproductions of iconic fast food packages are decorated in beautiful Talavera fashion, creating an engaging visual discourse between tradition and modernity.
