Obsessive Consumption

Went to the opening reception for Kate Bingaman-Burt this weekend that promoted her new book "Obsessive Consumption: What did you buy today?"

Obsessive Consumption represents a selection of four years of raw and simple ink drawings whipped together with tons of humor. The exhibit featured almost a thousand drawings of purchased goods along with illustrations of mixtapes, receipts, credit card statements, shoplifted items, internet passwords and security envelope patterns.

I loved how she pulled the space together showcasing her work. Multi-colored walls of salmon and lime, zines hanging from the celiing at various lengths (which you could purchase)  a wall made from balloons and original drawings to purchase, organzed by month and year. One of my favorite pieces was the internet passwords poster. So very funny and who knew that so many of us have filth on our minds!

Check out more of her work here.

    I was just looking at this book at Barnes and Noble! Her illustrations are fabulous. It is a truly lovely book that is on my amazon wish list.


Thanks for commenting!
