My goal with these pieces was to approach the topic of substance abuse with a soft light. I wanted to open the conversation of many individual’s hidden struggles through sculpture, specifically through personified food. Using cool-tones and a largely muted color scheme, I was able to create an atmosphere of approachability around such a stigmatized topic. These pieces were heavily influenced by the work of Genesis Belanger, who regularly explores abstracted food and inanimate objects through sculpture.
