Gallery artist TIFFANY SINGH and chef Ed Verner of Pasture restaurant in Parnell are collaborating to emphasize the ethics behind the sustainable future of food. Visually articulating the relationship between the garden and the table, Singh will create artworks that translate the platform between plate and paper.
International chef Ed Verner has created food at such established places as Meredith’s, SidArt, Stafford Road Wine Bar and is now co-owner of Pasture in Parnell with his wife Laura.
Tiffany will take Ed’s found and foraged organic ingredients and using organic processes, such as the Japanese Hapa-zome (leaf beating) technique to make pigments, will then create a series of artworks. This art making process will explore distilling the essence of food into colour and form, mirroring the creative practices that Ed uses to design the menu.
The works will be created in Pasture so that Tiffany can work alongside the open kitchen. They will be on show during Artweek in Pasture, creating an exhibition of permaculture ethics and principles.
On Saturday 8th October at 11:00 a.m as part of Art Week 2016, Tiffany and Ed will be giving a special talk at local Parnell Gallery in association with Melanie Roger Gallery and with support from the Parnell Business Association. The topic covers their collaboration of food and art, with Ed’s vision of seasonal menus and fresh local ingredients and Tiffany’s special creation of a series of paintings using Pasture elements.
