I’ve been working with clay for about nine years now, but I’ve been making art for as long as I can remember. Like everyone else, I’ve been eating for just as long. My food and art have slowly started to come together over the years. Living and working in the extreme north of New York State has given me a direct experience of where food comes from and where it goes. A bunny eats carrots, decomposers eat dead bunnies, and humans eat cupcakes. This is the order of things.
These plastic models of painstrokes, cast by conceptual artist Roxy Paine to look like the twist-off parts that come in a model kit, take the notion of ‘paint by numbers’ to a whole new level.
