Prepear Yourself: A Pair Of Pears!
A sensational new art exhibit is on display at the Pretentia art museum! Entitled Prepear Yourself, it features an array of paintings and sculptures created by internationally-renowned French artist, FrOoT. It's a spectacular display of high art inspired by dreams of a Pearallel universe.
Our own journalist, Natah Vejtible, sat down with FrOoT for an interview:
Natah: Thanks for being here today! I think the question on everyone's mind is, "Why pears?"
FrOoT: Of course. I had a dream one night about a pearallel universe where everything revolved around pears...so I got up and just started creating, you know?
Natah: What was the first work you created for this exhibit?
FrOoT: My first work was A Pair Of Pears, a male and female pear made out of pear resin. I think it speaks volumes about the human condition–about how we're really all like fruit. We desperately claw for a meaningful relationship before we shrivel up and turn brown in the sun. Yet some of us just fall to the ground alone and get eaten by birds.
Natah: Uh, ok...I guess that makes sense. "Prepear Yourself" has currently been on a world tour display in 24 cities now! Did you expect to receive such a positive response for this exhibit?
FrOoT: I didn't, actually...but I'm very pleased with how people pearceive it! ;)
Natah: Haha, I see what you did there. Do you have a favorite sculpture or painting?
FrOoT: I think Pear Of Pants speaks to me the most. It's a commentary on the social and political status of the world today. Everyone puts their pants on one leg at a time; we're all squishy and vulnerable to the forces of nature.
Natah: I think I get it, yeah. Well, thank you for your time!
FrOoT: You're welcome, it's been a pearleasure.
"Prepear Yourself" will be on display at the Pretentia museum in Atlanta, GA until April 24. It features 42 different works of art, a mini roller coaster, and a surprise pearamilitary ambush at the end. It's an exhibit beyond compear!
