Northwest-based artist Christopher Boffoli creates clever photographic vignettes. His process is combining miniature, hand-painted miniature figures with staged arrangements of food and beverages. He is 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 creates 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. He selects tongue-in-cheek titles that draw on old adages and colloquial sayings and witty repartees, which adds another level of interest to the work.

Champagne Scuba was created in December of 2014. Due to the inherent difficulty of working with a combination of liquids and miniatures, images depicting beverages tend to be among the rarer of subjects in my work. This piece will be the very first Big Appetites NFT available.
