CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A mixed media work set as a large wall-mounted circle presenting a centered painted star with six boxes. The star is painting in bright yellow, contrasting with the deep blue background. Each box sits on delimited red shapes, painting over the yellow star, at its center and five extremities. Each contains peanuts and a "whistle-blowing" bird whistle. Boxes also read ''New Bold's Comety in salted 2 lbs P-nut''. The composition recalls folklore aesthetic and humor.
