Opening reception: September 8, 5-7pm "The last few years, I've been making paintings of food and people in my culturally diverse, working class, west side Grand Rapids neighborhood. The subject of each portrait is the primary or delegated household cook and the materials needed to prepare a dish that exemplifies their identity. The gender, presented cuisine, kitchen setting, various ingredients and presentation all signify actual or desired aspects of class, cultural background, aspects of assimilation, economic status and even beliefs system. Each painting incorporates the dishes ingredients weights and measures (still life), cooking locale (space), the individuals representation (portrait), and together these reflect their history and culture(s). All together, the paintings celebrate the subjects ethnic and economic position and allow the viewer to actively connect, and if desired, decode and commune with the subject beyond passively observing the image as a likeness of the subject."
