The images in this Silhouette series are created by dropping or placing pieces of food onto a brightly colored surface and spray painting black over the food before removing it. The silhouette that results is an abstract wonder that hides its origin. Food is an semiconscious yet chronic subject of thought for me. What food do I need to buy for the week? What food have I eaten today? How many servings is that? Which of those foods shouldn’t I have eaten? Is it almost time to eat? Does that food have high fructose corn syrup in it? Something tells me I am not the only one with food on the mind..

This series will be exhibited at Rio’s Brazilian Cafe in Austin, TX during the month of January 2012.
