Food For Thought

FOOD FOR THOUGHT is a series of 21 oil paintings in the guise of an “Illustrated Cookbook” a personal voyage through the different cultures of Europe using food as its lens. The way people prepare their food is perhaps the most immediate and direct expression of their culture — basic and elaborate, colorful and tactile, sensual and textured — it is, in short, everything that an artist craves when searching for a subject of interest. For me, the challenge of expressing this in paint was just too thrilling to pass up.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT could be considered as an allegory of today’s Europe and its inspiring complexity.
