SWEET is a series of still life portraits of desserts executed in encaustic oils on gesso board and canvas. They are each signed (sealed) with the Artist’s Chinese chop embedded in the wax. Standing in front of each painting, the viewer may experience (in turn) the essence of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, banana, mint, lemon, maple syrup, cherry and combinations thereof. The olfactory experience is accomplished with a miniaturized dispenser hidden behind each painting. The device utilizes oil and water font, a desiccant, 5 cm donut atomizer and a small rotary fan. The low voltage electrical components are connected with a USB harness to a DC converter. A motion sensor with one-minute time-lapse switch controls the “on demand” fragrance. The Pancake still life depicts organic maple syrup from our Glenn (South Haven), MI neighbor, RIDLEY FAMILY SUGARHOUSE. Art can be FUN – a VISUAL and FRAGRANT TREAT!
