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)
