Art Description

Sculpture: Pottery and Taxidermy on Other.

Cake Stand #2 is part works revolving around the story of consumption.

Eight complete sets of preloved dentures looking OUT from the cake stand.

Here I articulate my concerns with food consumptions by subverting food presentation. 

I highlight the uneasy feelings at deriving aesthetic pleasure from others’ extinction, the plunder of other cultures/species; where unbelievable reality abruptly forces one to reassess what is true. When food is generally considered a comfort, these pieces seek to draw the viewer in and elicit discomfort. Questioning gluttony, obesity, starvation, mass production, fast food, GM food, processed food and fashions in molecular gastronomy.
