About Christopher BoffoliView Profile »
Northwest-based artist Christopher Boffoli combines miniature, hand-painted figurines from Germany with staged arrangements of food and beverages to create clever photographic vignettes. Inspired by an unusual combination of magazine food photography and the 18th century fable “Gulliver’s Travels,” Boffoli explores how inverting the proportions of people and their surroundings create unexpected points of interest. These creative scenes evoke an uncanny, albeit theatrically portrayed, likeness to the world at large. Boffoli also uses language to enhance the photographic narratives by selecting tongue-in-cheek titles that draw on old adages, colloquial sayings and witty repartees, adding another level of interest to the work.Interested in consigning works by Christopher Boffoli?
