Piece description from the artist
The cherry and spoon sculpture is a Minneapolis icon and offers a glimpse of whimsy all year long. With a wide blend of colors and texture
within and surrounding the photographic component of this piece, Cherryapolis makes for a great living room centerpiece, an upbeat touch to an office, or a happy image in a child's bedroom.
Using photography composed of strong architectural elements (organic and man-made), Ari David Rosenthal creates “re-imaginings” of his traditional fine art photography that reach far beyond the original image capture. Through a synthesis and application of dimension, saturation, and texture, Rosenthal’s newest pieces pop with dynamic fluidity.
A native of Milwaukee, WI, Rosenthal holds a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and an M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota. During the 1980s and 90s, he, a talented musician, played sax, flute, and EWI in various bands within the Milwaukee, Madison, and Minneapolis areas. In 2003, he returned home from Los Angeles and created OzMoses – a design, video, music, and marketing company. In 2004, OzMoses shifted heavily towards photography and videography and, in 2008, became Ari Rosenthal Photography.
