The artist's statement: The subject of "stuff people eat" interested me both visually and conceptually. These items of food are beautiful in a way that we don't often notice. It is rare to really pay attention to the structure and colors of food while you're preparing it, and even rarer to see photographs of food that play up these same attributes. I've always been attracted to pattern and structure, so working with food at my day job gave me glimpses into its unique beauty and motivated me to explore this further. Something that makes food even more visually appealing is its connection to us. Food can be soft, meaty, fleshy, all of which mimic our own humanity and invoke a kind of visceral feeling. This also shows up because food is the very stuff that keeps each of us alive. It is so necessarily integrated in each of our lives that we feel an automatic connection to it.
