This exhibit will offer narratives and reflections on the condition of humanity, featuring vivid “portraits” of everything from produce to large-scalesubversive jelly donuts. With an underlying anthropomorphic tone, Denise Stewart-Sanabria’s works include jarred cherries swimming in a pool ofartificial coloring, crystallized candy competing with baked goods ofmysterious coloration, and fruits acting out ancient fertility rites.
