“Tomatoes” is part of the Food Collection, and the Gallery Collection
My neighbour Beatrice grows Tomatoes right here in the city amidst the Dahlias and Hydrangeas in her front garden…somehow they fit the unplanned scheme of the garden, and I love it when she donates some fresh ones for my lunch…the joy of the everyday things in life…

filled with tomatoes,
through the streets.
It enters at lunchtime,
its own light,
benign majesty..excerpt Pablo Neruda…Ode to a Tomato
