Fencepiration at Heights Arts

What was supposed to be a massive construction project just ended up being a big hole in the ground so artists Carol Hummel and Debbie Apple Presser began a public art project, using recycled materials to decorate the fence with a montage of the seasons.

Last week, ArtWorks, the group I'm assistant teaching painting for, sent some of the apprentices to help them with the project.

Returning from the Dead

"It is a matter of physics, a scientific fact that the human body reacts in very similar ways when anticipating food and sex. Capillaries swell, lips and membranes become engorged, saliva thickens and the pulse rises. It's no accident that the two pleasures have become... confused."
— Anthony Bourdain

For my senior project, I chose to examine the idea of "food porn," how we watch Food Network or look at food magazines and the food is just as primped and shined as any pinup. And, as Mr. Bourdain points out, our reactions to food and sex can be similar. So I'm juxtaposing luscious food with equally luscious girls.
