Cheeseburger Sushi Oct 3rd DC & Oct 4th MD
Art Whino presents Cheeseburger Sushi, a playful juxtaposition of forms and ideas by artist Brandon Hill. In this solo exhibition Brandon infuses his funky style into a charged cross representation of the modern vs. the traditional, the Eastern vs. the Western, and the image vs. its physicality.
Touting the Cheeseburger as the “ambassador” food item of Americanism , Brandon playfully asserts that it is comparable in that sense to the way Sushi is viewed with an association to Japanese-ism. The two, he explains, “serve the same purpose in their level of respective popularity as well as status.” This core concept is the underlying connection within his various works that all incorporate “a fun mix of ideas that could be considered traditional by one culture” and new to another.
This show promises to be eye candy for everyone; incorporating 2D works, sculpture, designer vinyl, furniture art, light installation, and (of course) tasty treats, all in Brandon Hill’s unique and light hearted style.
The event is FREE and open to the public.
