This six-color silkscreen print is a prime example of Katherine Bernhardt's recent painterly departure—moving from the glamorous, sexualize portraits of fashion models she is known for, into brightly colored jumbles of everyday objects. Her bold, jagged style, which recalls German Expressionism, is here applied to a "Mr. Coffee" coffee maker and French fries. Set against a florescent mint-green, Mr. Coffee with Fries takes on a new attitude of spontaneity for Bernhardt, whose recent work is both thought provoking and humorous.
