Culinary Still Lifes: “Food Mapping”, 2009 - 2012. Watercolor on paper.

I began “Food Mapping” as a way of looking at the everyday visual underpinnings of common foods and packaging in our environment. While moving through rows in grocery stores, or looking at a particular food item, what we see can appear incidental. However, the interface of volume, color, shape and texture can yield unexpected insights.

Using transparent watercolor allowed the “see-through” quality I was looking for.
