just in time for thanksgiving, san francisco-based creative hannah rothstein has imagined what the festive plates of famous artists would be, composing turkey, cranberry, beans and corn in their own signature style. mondrian’s geometric color blocks are materialized as neatly organized rectangles of tidy greens and potatoes; van gogh’s swirling ‘starry night’ is seen as spinning spirals of stuffing and dreamy dollops of gravy; pollock’s plate paints a particularly abstract picture, scattered with corn kernels and messy drips of dressing. with food on everyone’s mind today, the ‘thanksgiving special’ series isn’t just about playing with it — profits from 25 signed, limited edition prints are to be donated to the sf-marin food bank.
