The fun of cooking was what led me to the first “recipe paintings”. With pictorial and culinary sensuality, the “recipe paintings” capture the wise traditional cooking of anonymous housewives. The paintings reflect the same movements as the bottoms of my cooking pots. They are not still lifes; they are living, everyday processes that reveal the history of a civilization. In these paintings, all my senses burst out through energetic strokes, bright colors, and the outsize of the marvelous.
