Have a good time with your food (2013)

This painting series envisions a human man in the normal act of eating a meal while inexplicably vexed by a host of tiny, Brueghelesque characters. In Have a good time with your food (M), a host of these intruders converge upon the man's meal, carrying off food items and even sawing apart his table from below. Have a good time with your food (M2) shows the man attempting to sleep, having eaten, while curious, tiny interlopers prod him and pull at his bib. In Have a good time with your food (pirates), the small characters undertake a voyage of discovery in a soup tureen, sailing boats created from carrots and leeks. In envisioning these scenarios, the series explores the everyday and the imaginary as overlapping worlds in conflict.
