My art direction focuses on the intersection of humans and food. The body of work created for my final project explores society’s perceptions of food. It can be interpreted as a ‘digestive’ process which navigates humankind’s fascination and interaction with food. As both an object and a concept, the fruit bowl became significant when navigating the theories of food symbology, connotations and disgust theory. My initial series of prints involved the deconstruction of fruits to create new organic forms. This idea then evolved into creating three-dimensional pieces, working with ceramic, and alternating the ways fruit can be displayed. Finally, as I became engrossed in theories concerning food disgust, I chose to further pursue painting techniques. Such techniques enabled me to create a visual interpretation of what can be considered disgusting; with consideration given to how this could be exhibited to an audience.
