Continuing with my interest in shells and in particular, iridescence, I am now celebrating the shellfish's culinary aspects. The square format is a nod to of the omnipresent instagram shot of meals, posted by the thousands each day. I want to explore how this phenomenon of diners around the world capturing the image of their plate has created an opportunity to capture and create Art - no matter how humble - in our everyday lives. An act as basic as the need to feed oneself, can now be a moment where the consumer stops to see if the meal is worthy of documentation. There is a basic appreciation of craft, of the chef or cook's craft, and of the beauty of the food - a small mindful moment - that I find appealing.

In the second work of the Enclosures series, I wanted to explore the other aspects of the discrepancy between the haves and the have nots in Hong Kong Again, a poster in the background describes the "cage homes" many are forced to live in by the astronomical rent prices in the city. Above the crowding and rancour of bamboo-caged cocktateils, a bluebird sits oblivious in it's gilded cage, while the covered cages evoke the seclusion and denial of the upper classes. Privacy is a privilege not available to the poor of Hong Kong.

This work addresses the excess of beauty and the paucity of space in Hong Kong. The packed and stacked bamboo cages of The Bird Market evoke the dense living conditions of the city. The poster on the wall behind, and the newspapers along the bottom describe Hong Kong's "cage homes": 6 x 2.5 foot wire mesh pens where many of the city's destitute must live because of skyrocketing rents. The article is in Cantonese, and shows a man sleeping in his "cage" - one of three stacked vertically. While I've overheard many lament the plight of these birds in their small cages in The Bird Market, there are men and women in this city living in far worse conditions, comparatively.

Like other works in the Enclosures series, this piece explores issues of privacy and overcrowding in the urban environment. Many live in cage or "coffin" homes stacked above each other, while others live in luxury. Newsprint articles in Cantonese describe the destitute conditions of Hong Kong's very poor, while a solitary bird in a gilded cage looks down from its luxurious perch.

First of the "Humanist Icon" series, this work celebrates the beauty of the womanly form in a format reminiscent of small devotional images. By using the luminosity of gold leaf, it elevates the human form to a status historically reserved for religious icons, but now with a warmth, expression and sensuality that is a nod to secular humanism.
