Compost Composition

Compost Composition is an on-going photo documentation of still lifes made from all the waste created from food consumption within a day or two. Not only is it a Renaissance moment of bringing back the essence and beauty of 17th century still life paintings, but also a political statement. We produce way more food than the world actually needs. Much of the excess is being wasted and not directed toward those who need it, putting the security of global food in jeopardy.  The climate is also suffering due to the amount of excess greenhouse gases emitted to produce the extra food. Compost Composition is not only making a statement, but also is an attempt to merge the waste from my cooking with my art practice.
