FOOD MOOD


Archaeologists have found drawings of food on the walls of Egyptian pyramids. In ancient Egyptian culture it was believed that those drawings, through magical properties, would nourish those gone on to the after life. Things haven’t changed much since then. . . today you will find depictions of food on the walls of restaurants, people’s homes and in hotels.



We don’t necessarily believe that they nourish us like the Egyptians did but we do clearly find something very appealing, comforting almost, by having paintings of food. Food & Art collages are made by me as I'm inspired by the connection between the two.....
