Event description

Description

“Shells”, a collection of photographs by artist David Krovblit. The images are a combination of decorative traditions upon the form of a hand grenade. These combinations of beautiful, traditional, humorous and deadly, highlight the contrast of two elements of existence: an egg, the origin of life and the grenade, a harbinger of death. While both concepts can be of a serious nature, Krovblit’s combination creates a levity that makes the pieces engaging and approachable.


Krovblit’s three themes from the show are drawn from different cultures and time frames. The Fabergé Eggs of Imperial Russia, Japanese and Chinese Pottery, and commercial graphics from American advertising are utilized in creating a narrative of the long relationship between businesses and the machines of war.
