Kyle Krauskopf, The Desi (Bongos), 2018, watercolor on paper
Opens Sunday September 15 // 2-5pm
The FoodArt Collection is proud to present our first show dedicated to the depiction of prepared food from Seattle artist Kyle Krauskopf. You'll likely recognize some of these delicious dishes from your favorite restaurants around town rendered in Krauskopf's skillful watercolors.
We all get stuck in our ruts and routines sometimes; blinders on to new experiences, places, or adventures. In an effort to shake up my own routines, and get some art work done in the process, I created Illustrated Fare. The idea being to, once a week, patronize a restaurant or eatery I had never been to before. Some of these places were carefully researched, while others simply were what struck me as I drove by. I have always had a deep affection for food, my fourth- grade fat self can attest to this, but as I have grown so has my palette and appreciation for a well crafted flavor or dish. Its wonderful to live in a city where one could not possibly experience every meal there is to be had. I am proud to present a small smattering of dishes from local restaurants through the lens of watercolor.
About the Artist
Lightning wielding, mixed media artist Kyle Krauskopf creates like other people breathe. Given to year long projects Krauskopf is currently embroiled in a daily drawing project termed Small Drawings High Hopes. The project consists of producing a six-inch-square mixed media drawing each day for the calendar year of 2019. Other projects have included 365 Days of Wood- a daily wood working project revolving around a scroll saw, and The Virago Artist Collective- an international artistic collaboration highlighting influential and flat-out bad ass women throughout history. When not actively working on his craft you can find Krauskopf helping people build things such as the Flying Bike Brewery in Greenwood WA, the Kan-Kan Theatre in Indianapolis IN, and the up and coming Museum of Museums on Seattle's First Hill WA. Sometimes he takes a break to have a drink, but it has to be an “earned” one.
