Curator's Note: You don't just have to put food art in your kitchen, but the story behind this piece makes that seem all too appropriate. Read more below:
I did a series I called "What's In My Fridge". I painted "portraits" of the fruit drawer, the cheese drawer, veggie drawer, etc. Food occupies such a big parts of our lives that I thought it would be fun to bring to light what usually sits in the cold and darkness of our refrigerators.
There's a compulsion to interpret visual moments for this painter. The hope is that a special moment can somehow be preserved forever. I love working in oil paints. They are challenging and forgiving at the same time. Color, texture and light are the main components that I try to give center stage. And then sometimes I just paint a simple painting without much thought at all. It's all creative process.
