My mom always told me that my eyes are bigger than my stomach. Recently I have been thinking about how that idea applies to my art practice, as well as the work that I’m drawn to. I like photography that is more luscious, more fleshy, more alive. To me, more is luxurious, more is ecstasy, more is better.
While stuffing myself with home made dumplings, I contemplated the idea of visual exuberance as the photographic form of a celebratory feast, and that train of thought led me to the works of Maisie Cousins, Traci Matlock, Bryson Rand, Mickalene Thomas, and Brian Vu.
