Thinking Twice

 

 

This series originated with trips to markets in Mexico, France and Spain, where I  saw
meat and fish cut and displayed in a manner which I had never seen before. Sheets
of beef were hanging from wires above the vendor, lit from behind. They looked
like paintings. Expanses of seafood were glistening under the variously colored lights.

I saw many aesthetic and abstract possibilities in subjects that also have repugnant associations in our culture.
