Beneath The Palms, The Chocolate Vanilla Croissant

Beneath The Palms, The Chocolate Vanilla Croissant, 2023.
Limited edition print on archival paper.
Hand-signed and numbered at the lower margins.

The vanilla, grown in Tahiti, is regarded at the highest standards by chefs around the world. It is infused in many of their recipes and particularly produces a very special, unique flavor in their croissants. Of course, I am always finding inspiration in the landscape and simplicity of Tahiti, but I was in complete ecstasy when I experienced their freshly made dark chocolate sweetly together with their island vanilla croissant, existing in delicious harmony.

This chocolate vanilla croissant is possibly a perfect metaphor for the Tahitian’s total disregard for strict divisions in all living things. Although, it is still an irresistible tasty plate with all the seductions of overindulgence, eventually sinking one into another lethargy “beneath the palms,” bathing in a vital environment of simplicity, energy, and light (the other “flying croissant “universe).  — Tom Everhart 2023­­­­.
