“Food photography?” Shows images of food, or references to food, in unusual configurations.
To represent both themes I have used everyday objects, but outside their normal context. The resulting images need to be ‘read’ twice. First, the objects are recognized. Next, the suggested associations are ‘read’. The same approach is often used in surreal and conceptual art forms. All images have an absurdly humorous twist. To enhance the visual coherence of the two series I have chosen saturated, repeating colors to get a consistent presentation. The deliberate use of a simple background facilitates the ‘reading’ of the hinted associations.
