Combining paint and magazine images of desserts, this painting reflects the unhealthy relationship with food that many Americans have, which is contributing to epidemic levels of obesity, type-two diabetes, and other diet related diseases. Children especially seem trapped in the cycle of convenience, consumption, and craving, as they are powerless over the food they are raised on - food that is scientifically engineered with the express purpose of creating addictive responses in the consumer.
