Betty, Carol and Samantha Await.
Here's another little visual treat from my current show at Marlow Gallery in Barrie. "Betty" is all mixed up as her arms are no longer strong enough to mix cookie dough! What has happened to those firm upper arms of the 50's and 60's? Oh yes, it was the invention of the wonderful electric mixer that seduced us all with its shiny and sleek design. Somehow it snuck into each of our cubboards to undermine our own physical abilities, leaving us to be slaves to its existence as we carefully release it from the confines of a dark shelf, assemble it, plug it in, lick the excess sweet recipes from it's appendages, wipe it clean, soak its private parts, dry it and then carefully rearrange its abode so we can find a neat and tidy spot for it to rest until we use it again.
