Title: You Are What You Eat
Description: Ceramic stoneware and porcelain bisque fire to cone 04, glaze fired with clear to cone 6; Cold finished with acrylic, dirt, and mixed media. This artwork references how we as people can hate the media as much as we want, but at the end of the day, we are the ones who allow it to thrive. We can preach about the toxicity media brings, however, we are the ones who create it. I am constantly faced with a decision: do I take another bite? Do I allow it to control me? Stop, and it could all be over. Just turn it off. Incorporating the color gold exhibits how the media is deceptively glorious and shiny. The glistening berries are representative of the collective posts, likes, tweets, news articles, and shows. They become a part of my skin, head, and soul as I continue to bite into the delicious berry.
