The work in this collection started in 2020, during the global pandemic. These refrigerator interiors evoke everything from food hoarding to food shortages, as well as the personalities, diets, and life-styes of their owners. Additionally, they allude to the 16th century Dutch "vanitas" tradition, in which food, flowers, and other perishable items speak to the fleeting nature of life and the passing of time.
