Artist's Statement

My most recent series, The Disintegration of Dinner, deals with the deep connections between food and raw emotion in a way that goes beyond clichés like chocolate during menstruation and ice cream for break-ups. I began painting bowls of soup during a difficult time in my life. I had begun eating increasingly less substantial bowls of noodle soup as food became pleasure-less to me. The paintings of soup are large and occupy an uncomfortable amount of the canvas so that the viewer feels overwhelmed. Red Jello deals with how we, as a culture measure recovery and feel relief in terms of how much one eats. The chocolate bar paintings and cupcake speak to how our sense of taste turns off in dire moments, and turn back on when we sense relief.
