Erin Rothstein Art #FoodieDaysofChristmas Contest
It’s day 22 of the #FoodieDaysOfChristmas. So far, we have given away experiences, lots of tasty treats, home appliances, mystery boxes, plates, and more…but, we have yet to give away the gift that will keep you thinking of food 24/7. Erin Rothstein’s artwork will probably make you hungry, and that’s the exact point, but, unlike a great meal that comes and goes, art lasts forever.
Erin Rothstein is a Canadian artist, born in Montreal and currently living and working in Toronto. In her series, “The Tasting Room,” Rothstein uses her signature hyperrealist style to portray edible subjects on stark-white background. “I paint food because I love everything that has to do with food-culture,” Rothstein explains. “You’ll often find me cooking and eating, all the while engrossed in a total culinary experience of smells, tastes, and aesthetics. The foods I paint are universally relatable. They trigger people’s emotions on a very primal level, making them happy, hungry, excited, and nostalgic.”
Erin herself is as whimsical and relatable as her art. We recall the first time we met her, we gravitated towards “The Kiss”. In the conversation that followed, her passion and ultra bright personality shone through. She shares the same passion we do for a great dish or drink, but uses art as her canvas. Rothstein has a way of bringing art and food closer together, fostering a new appreciation of art in an immersive foodie-culture.
Her work and passion do not go unnoticed. She has been written up The Huffington Post, The National Post, Architectural Digest, Toronto Life, and BlogTO, to name a few. Rothstein’s work is held in major collections including Google and The Colart Collection. Want to meet his dynamo in person? She’ll be at the Artist Project from February 23-26, 2017.
