Working with vegetables as still-lifes for 13 years, some of my models seem to take on a graceful gesture, striking a pose that suggests movement - in beautifully choreographed form. How often do we slow down to take in the magnificence of often-overlooked vegetables and edible plants that nourish us? Do we notice the gracefulness of squash blossoms, the elegance of corn being unwrapped from its husk or the playfulness of garlic scapes? These portraits often feature a single species isolated to retain the simplicity of the subject while highlighting the complexity of its sculptural form.
