June 24, 2009: Eat Art

Since youse guys wanna eat all da IOtDs, eat this. :p

Quote:
Black current jam trees, marmalade pavements, mint sauce buildings and a tartar sauce sky all feature in a mouth watering new painting set to raise funds for The New Children’s Hospital Appeal.

F. Duerr & Sons, makers of jam, marmalade, sweet spreads and condiments commissioned local artist Lindi Kirwin to capture the iconic Central Library building in Manchester using the products available from their factory.

Named ‘Manchester Preserved’, the vibrant and creative interpretation, created at Lindi’s studio in Vernon Mill, Stockport and due to be unveiled at Broadstone Mill, Stockport, is being auctioned on ebay. Duerr’s hope that the painting will raise more than £1,000 for the charity.

marmalade pavements ... and a tartar sauce sky
Something's just not right here...

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmellow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes.

Why couldn't the artists used whatever he used for the windows for the sky instead of tartar? I've been to NOLA a couple of times. I can't say as I ever looked up and said, "Wow, you know, the sky here reminds of me of tartar sauce."

Oh, and how would one go about "preserving" this art work? I know some ants down in south Texas that could pick that thing clean in an hour or so. Then the owner really would be in a "jam".

I'm confused. Isn't this library in the UK?

Anyhoo, I think it's very pretty.

'Cause, like, I don't even know what manc means.


xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jun 25 01:03 PM

Manc is someone from Manchester, or a supporter of the Manchester football team.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jun 25 01:07 PM

Football?

Oh, so it wasn't me.

What is someone from Worcestershire, a worce tart?



Flint  Thursday Jun 25 01:14 PM

Shawnee123  Thursday Jun 25 01:42 PM

If she lives in Buckingham Palace she is the Queen of Tarts.



Gargantutron  Thursday Jun 25 02:41 PM

Much better than any macaroni art I ever made in elementary school.



Gravdigr  Thursday Jun 25 03:15 PM

Feet are ugly. Anybody's feet. Everybody's feet. Ugly. That's why God put them so far from your eyes. And why He made me fat.

Stockport is the nearest town to where I grew up
