In the Cherry Biter paintings, the biter is captured mid-chomp, teeth tearing at the fleshy fruit, suspended in a macabre state of pre-demolition. Saliva glistens on the tongue and teeth and the cherry, half-chewed is often unidentifiable. Lusciously rendered in vivid hues, the pictures are decadent, and unabashedly sexual, but the subject is something more inclusive than lust. It is, rather, the totality of sensual pleasures involved in the experience of biting into a cherry: the visceral satisfaction of crushing something plump and firm in one's teeth, the burst of flavor, the succulent juice, and finally, the satiation of hunger.
