The art series aptly titled Menu by Garth and Pierre, a Washington-based studio founded by Garth Amundson and Pierre Gour, serves up some stunning vintage images of food that have been artfully perforated for a modern touch. Having appropriated nostalgic imagery of restaurants, kitchens, and table settings, the series explores perceptions and politics surrounding food.

Each image in Menu by Garth and Pierre has been hand-punched using basic geometric shapes such as hexagons, triangles and squares. The result is a lace-like grid that gives the images a graphic design aesthetic while also mirroring contours found in the primary image. As though romanticizing the past that has been made undeterminable, the art series has been given subtle depth.
