David Gilhooly (American, b. 1943) Lot of Four Works: Erotic Frogs on Roll, Frog on Roll, FrogTaco, and Chocolate Dipt Ice Cream Cone from the FrogFood series Frogs signed and dated "Gilhooly 1975," Frog signed and dated "Gilhooly 75," FrogTaco signed "Gilhooly" on the fold, Chocolate signed and dated "GILHOOLY 75" on the cone. Glazed ceramic, sizes to 7 x 6 x 5 in. (17.8 x 15.2 x 12.7 cm). Condition: Restored break to end of cone. Provenance: Estate of an arts benefactor, New York. N.B. Gilhooly was at the center of an experimental pottery movement, later known as California Funk, while studying at the University of California, Davis under Robert Arneson in 1962. According to Gilhooly, "FrogFood was an idea that started off as the FrogWorld idea of a snapshot or photograph of an artistic act done on a vacation. The frogs of the FrogWorld would go on a vacation, make themselves into a food sculpture under the direction of a professional frogartist, and as a souvenir of the occasion, take home a small sculpture. These small sculptures would then be displayed on a shelf somewhere in the home much like our-world's photo albums. The frogs would then look at these small pieces and remember their vacations. A special type of FrogFood (sort of X-rated) was made by honeymooning couples and was an off-shoot of this original idea." (1) The present works were created in Gilhooly's first year of the FrogFood series, and may have originally sold through Hansen-Fuller Gallery, San Francisco. We wish to thank the artist for his assistance with cataloguing the lot. (1) http://www.davidgilhooly.com/04frogfood.htm
