An ode to the sweet potato, referencing the self-proclaimed sweet potato capital of the world, Vardaman, Mississippi. Reverse painting on a mirrored glass frame mimics a Eudora Welty photograph, with the addition of a blackbird-laden sky. The piece includes a vintage photograph in frame, an early 20th century postcard, sweet potato recipes torn from old cookbooks, a scrap of a hand-appliqued vintage tablecloth, hand-painted swallows, a very old chair leg, and a board embellished by spraying varnish over old cardboard letters, leaving a ghost of “Vardaman, Mississippi” on the wood, like a fading mural on a feed store.
