Artist Statement

My practice explores personal, local, and international food cultures; their origins and eccentricities. Flesh was made while on residence in Germany, the title references the German translation for meat, fleisch.

The images are cut from a book of masterfully presented, award winning meat platters. The rolled meats intertwine in waves while garnishes feature as focus points for the work, the craftsmanship of which is polluted by their garishness. Celebrating and remaining skeptical of the imagery, Flesh amplifies the ridiculousness, beauty, and comedy of artful meat platter display.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
