Jell-O Surprise

It was the Dutch Masters treatment of a troll doll that caught my eye as I looked into the window of the Grenning Gallery (17 Washington Street, 725-8479) today on my way to the IGA, but it was artist Anthony Ackrill's brooding Jell-O still life, reminiscent of Rembrandt's apples, that captivated me once I stepped inside. What an unsettling and honest depiction of this strange but colorful food!
