Artist Statement for Culinary Project
I’m fascinated by the art of preparing food and the tools used to create it. With the number of dishes chefs prepare each day, tools and equipment take a beating. The dents, scratches, cracks and patina all create beauty in their imperfections. I truly enjoy peering into the kitchens, tracking down these tools, and documenting their vulnerability from human treatment. The resulting images sometimes turn out very abstract, while others are more clearly about the objects themselves.
