About

CK Jar Memory series - painted after Robert Morris felt sculpture Take a simple object - how about the generic trademark of the Mason Ball Jar. Patented by the Philadelphia tinsmith, James Landis Mason in 1858 as a practical way for canning fresh foods. With its wide mouth, winter beets and summer strawberries could be safely ‘preserved’ in its tight, vacuum seal. Now add two masterful illusionists -the tag-team of C&K - into the mix, stir up the post-modern visual contexts and voila! Is it a double-entendre, sight gag or para­dox of what needs to be lovingly kept from spoilage in our contaminated, toxic world? Abracadabra - it's the history of art is transformed into a perfectly “preserved” set of iconic images flash frozen into their wildly creative original paintings and limited edition prints. If Andy Warhol could transform the banality of soup cans and detergent packages into “Pop” art, and Jeff Koons had the idea of making plastic beach toys of lobsters into titanium sculptures, then C&K have pushed the post-modernist irony to its ultimate extreme. Art History’s heavyweights are each playfully canned. Each jar is filled with the memories of Leonardo, Titian, El Greco, Ingres, Picasso, Matisse, de Kooning, Pollock, Kahlo, Warhol and Lichtenstein and more. “We are attempting something more real, more intense than reality,” Marina explains. Quoting his Parisian comrades - Jean Baudrillard, Umberto Eco, and Marc le Bot - Serge speaks in thickly layered Gallic metaphors. But art of this nature - ponder­ous, deliriously experimental, marvelously creative - needs no pretentious analysis.” Philip Eliasoph, PhD - Professor of Art History & Visual Culture, Fairfield University
