Food For Thought – Opening Reception

August 11, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Indonesian contemporary realist painter Dian Paramita exhibits her latest work. The exhibition encompasses 30 recent still life paintings of popular food from different cultures in the 21st Century. She graduated from Studio Incamminati’s Advanced Fine Art Program in 2016. Her artistic background includes skills in painting and drawing in the style of contemporary realism. Intrigued by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which embraces beauty in the naturally imperfect world, Dian’s paintings centers around celebrating the ephemerality of everyday life. In her still life paintings, she mainly focuses on capturing the temporary beauty of food that often was taken for granted. Having received inspiration to create her paintings from popular food and drinks in the area, she aims to give back by dedicating her first solo show to raise funds for MANNA.

20% of the proceeds will be donated to MANNA, a non-profit organization that cooks and delivers nutritious, medically-appropriate meals and provides nutrition counseling to neighbors who are battling life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, renal disease, and HIV/AIDS.
