Take the pastry of concept, roll it out with the colors of the rainbow, and serve it up with a dollop of debate.

Quote

“That the word ‘monster’ resonates in monstrare, the Latin word for ‘to show’, is probably more than a coincidence, and the world von Bonin serves up is indeed monstrous with its outsized mushrooms, rockets, and octopuses that look as if they had just escaped from an old-fashioned Jules Vernes film adaptation, not to mention the gigantic, floppy stuffed animals and her soft pictures or ‘rags,’ as she calls them.” Dirk von Lowtzow Parkett No. 81, 2007

About

“Recalling exactly the shape of a rolling pin, this enameled stainless steel wheel in seven rainbow colors turns a household item into an artwork. Humorously released with the statement "Take the pastry of concept, roll it out with the colors of the rainbow, and serve it up with a dollop of debate", this work conveys von Bonin's lighthearted appropriation of quotidian objects as well as her signature bright color palette.” -Fineartmultiple
