In 2004 Sharon Core was the artist of Thiebauds, the exhibition about the photographical enactment of twelve early food paintings by Bay Area artist, Wayne Thiebaud, at BellWether gallery. The meticulous constructions by the artist of cakes, pies, hotdogs, etc. is a mimetic homage. Each photograph is printed the size of the original painting. That’s how Sharon Core inverted the common practice of making a painting from a photograph: the resulting work refers simultaneously to painterly illusionism and photographic reality.
