Gouche on hardboard
5" x 11" x 1/8"
In 2012, The Sexy Potato was created as a part of the “Double Barrel” exhibition. It was inspired by an empty Lay’s potato chips’ bag on the street of Baltimore. The Sexy Potato was created as a symbol for the passion for the potatoes in our society. The first edition of 1 was made in 2012 and the second edition of 1 was made in 2013. Recently, unfinished copies of them were discovered. They have been restored and would be the final, 3rd edition of 14.
