North Carolina

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

Why do we crave particular foods? How is food labeling politically biased? Why is most of the food we eat genetically modified? Why are the "peaches" in peaches and cream instant oatmeal actually artificially flavored and colored apple bits? Through mixed media constructions, I critique contemporary food culture in the United States. My work serves as a poetic medium for processing and spreading information about food production, labeling, and consumption. My aim is to encourage critical thinking and in doing so, invite possibilities for positive change.
