If you’ve read Jonathan Swift’s 18th century novel, “Gulliver’s Travels” (1726), you may recall that its globe-girdling hero Gulliver, had journeyed to exotic, far-flung lands, where he’d encountered strange beings, some tiny, some gargantuan, some cerebral, some equine, some rambunctious, and some, simian-like.
Seattle-based photographer and artist Christopher Boffoli, much like Gulliver, is widely traveled, and he too, has come across Lilliputian life-forms—those that he himself has created. His “Big Appetites” series features miniature, hand-painted figures, planted in edible environments.
By taking on more than what the toy-like people can chew, literally, they offer a visual commentary on America’s problem of excess consumption.
