The Imperial fleet is approaching our position quickly, but I don't want to leave. The ships look so yummy! Surely a warship that presents itself as a delicious treat can't be all that bad.
Roland Tamayo's art is noted for its surreal blending of nature and everyday objects. His current exhibition, titled "Collection of Curiosities," is at the Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasedena, California. What do his edible Super Star Destroyers mean? Tamayo explains:
These pieces are a collection of treats enjoyed by my sons, along with nostalgic treats from my childhood, connected by a mutual love and enjoyment of Star Wars. One of my favorite childhood memories was going to Fedco here in Pasadena, who employed my grandfather as an Optometrist. Because of his employment there, we would go often to buy family supplies, toys, etc., at a discount, and there would always be Toblerone candy at the checkout isle. It was my first introduction to that candy, and whenever I see it, it reminds me of my grandfather. Never would I have thought that a Toblerone candy would be a subject of a painting, especially combined with a Star Destroyer. But I'm so grateful for this opportunity, that it has.
