For Supper Club, Scott Anderson broaches the timely topic of food, a subject that has been readily explored from Dutch still life painting and its visualization of wealth to post-modernist chunky mark making as a stand-in for visceral desire. Anderson, however, tackles the contemporary concerns of social rituals like dinner parties, food policy discourse, popular culture, and personal memories of a hungry teenager suburban community.
The paintings refuse to present a recognizable whole story, but rather assemble an alternative, dystopian reality using the leftovers, the table scraps, and the refuse. The results are a melting pot of modernist painting vernacular that hinge on political satire, or as Anderson aptly declares in an especially luscious and complicated composition, it's "Farm to Table Dinner Theatre."
