Summary

Artist Statement

Hi, my name's Kenny Pittock. I'm a 29-year-old artist in Melbourne. My work mostly combines drawing, painting and ceramics to respond to contemporary Australian iconography, often using a little bit of humour and sometimes using words, play and wordplay.

I'm delighted to have been commissioned to make these seven ceramic objects specifically to accompany this very ins-pie-ering Four'N'Twenty sign from the early 1970s. The seven ceramic objects presented here are all directly from my childhood, but can also still be found in most Melbourne milkbars today.
