Artist Diet [Project 4: Conceptual Art]

Summer 2016
Mixed Media

My artist statement for the project:

Artist Diet calls attention to the popular notion of the starving artist. This work offers not just one, but two wholesome meals known for their value. These meals are also, however, inedible. In my endeavors as an art student thus far, my desire for money has been overshadowed by my need to make art. Constructed from the scraps of previous art endeavors, Artist Diet provides the viewer insight to my beliefs as it offers the meal I’d prefer to ‘eat’.”
