Artist Statement

The 15 images displayed represent a few samples of 4 seperate series. The following statement discusses drawings 5-10

Fam Farm reflect the loss of natural farming within westernized culture. Genetic modification, factory farming, as well as deceitful packaging and misguided labeling results in confusion and a disconnection between customer and the source of their food. Each drawing describes in various ways a group of chickens or pigs wrapped in flowing pretty pink ribbons. These ribbons operate to suggest manipulative tactics within the packaging and labeling of food leading to costumer confusion. The plucked areas detailed within each animal were used to suggest the preparation of food, specifically pointing toward factory farming, and how each animal born is essentially "an inanimate structure" whose short-lived and harsh existence is designed in service of human consumption.
