Pop and vintage have embraced fork art
wholeheartedly. These works can either be in black and white or color and can be beautifully sophisticated in their depiction. Vintage works
generally use the fork to hint at exotic locales and fine cuisine, such as in the painting 'Fine Dining I' by Carol Robinson, or to depict the grace of the utensil in its own right, as seen in Gregory Graham's artwork, 'Forks'. Pop artists
are more focused on the graphic qualities of the fork
and remind people of the long dining history this utensil has been used in. Examples of
vary considerably however, and the realistically whimsical touches of Darrin Hoover have a proud place beside such works as 'Blue Plate Special' by Louise Max.
also find fork art
interesting and are one of the most uniquely creative forms of this category. However, these artworks
are typically concerned with the act of eating rather than the intrinsic qualities of the fork itself. Works such as 'Cherry Pie' by Jennifer Bonaventura use the fork combined with other eating implements in order to portray the enjoyment and nostalgia of a home-cooked meal.
