The Food Show plays homage to food while exploring the texture and mark making of recycled domestic objects. Seeing domestic objects not for what they are but for what they can create.

The Food Show is my first exhibition in a new painting style. The style comprises of a number of layers of enamel paint being built up. The patterns which make up the layers are made from the shadows an object leaves once hit with a spray of paint. The objects used have been dissected to create stencils. A peg basket is taken apart, a cassette tape in deconstructed, a kitchen utensil is repurposed. These objects are stripped to their bare ingredients, where their essence becomes a visual map of the domestic environment in which food is the hero.
