Convenient Vanities: Drumstick and Lemon

2014, wood, ceramics, applique quilting, butterflies and acrylic paint. 24" x 27" x 22 x 6"

This work combines an awareness of convenient access to foods with little nutritional value with the concept of Vanitas, a term for the inevitable fate that awaits us all. My local 7-Eleven inspired me with ice cream novelties and a cut lemon, a common symbol in Vanitas paintings.
