Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

The whole horse hoof thing doesn't make it pair well with anything edible to me

I don't know what aspic of this idea makes me cringe the most; onions, carrots, or olives in my Jell-O.

I don't know but it carries all kinds of booze.

Lovely salad! One modification that I would make. I will use plain gelatine and add sherry it. I always do, this is the Argentinian variety I learned from my Italian grandmother. She use Marsala.
