Works in progress.
Like most of the tradition of still life; objects, especially food and drink, are used as code within cultures to communicate value, belief, and project what we want others to see in ourselves, often exposing pride and arrogance in the process. These images are not meant to be read autobiographically as much as fictions created from my culture.
