Paying attention to what we
eat is a revolutionary act. As a gardener, I have the once-common
experience of getting to know my food from seed to harvest. As an
artist, I visually explore these foods and the connections between food,
community, consumerism and spiritual sustenance. My primary medium is
photography on cloth. My current series of photo quilts, "Vegetable
Prayers", pays visual homage to the beauty and diversity of the
vegetable world. I also create three-dimensional photo/fiber
constructions on layers of silk organdy which allow the viewer to see,
and see through, different images at the same time.
What we eat has profound
implications for our own health and the health of the planet. With this
body of work, I invite the viewer to consider the nature and quality of
our food, where it comes from, and our relationship to it.
