ManMaker: Dan Kenneally’s Abstract Sandwich Art

created at: 02/11/2010

San Francisco-based artist Dan Kenneally has created Lunchbox, a series of 18″x18″ sandwich paintings, that each use a minimal colored stripe to represent ingredients.

“Lunchbox presents a curious departure from an ordinary subject matter which is unprecedented in the art community. It communicates volumes though use of complex arrangement of color, and simplification. This ambitious feat achieves harmony through balance and composition.”

I like that these are physical paintings with texture and drips, etc, rather than simple stripes drawn on the computer.It feels… I don’t know, just more comment-y. And it serves as a reminder that a good idea + some basic tools = great art.

Check it out at Cargo Collective. And they’re all available for purchase at Dan’s etsy shop.
