“Blue Bowl / White Rice” : Inside the Artist’s Studio

This painting began when I noticed a bowl with rice left out  in my recently renovated kitchen. Initially, I just liked the image of the blue bowl against the white background of the new countertop and tiles. However, as the work progressed, it became a meditation on the nature of hunger in the world:  how, in some places,  that little bit of rice might be someone’s entire meal.  (Painted 2011)
