Almost 40 years ago I started to use junk food as subject matter for oil paintings. Even the enlightened in the ‘art community’ raised their eyebrows and generally took a pass.
I was, and still am, amazed at what people will eat: industrial food-like substances that our grandmothers would never recognize, let alone feed to friends. I have noticed that some of this ‘stuff’ has become high-end restaurant fare, and Spam is a star. This puzzles me and is on my list of growing things I do not understand.
I am still painting junk food and am making something for the table that reflects my interests. Amazing.
Enjoy and be well,
