Food: Dying to Eat by Alison Dean Cowitz

16" x 26"   $500

I explored the goddess of overindulgence and poor lifestyle. This goddess emerged mythically, like Botticelli's Venus. She is born into a divine love of junk food, booze and smokes that are her driving life force. While there are subtleties (can you spot them?) the main message of my piece is a straightforward cautionary tale of how poor consumption choices can send us to an early grave. Are you eating to live, or dying to eat?

Techniques: Raw edge appliqué, fabric collage, free motion machine quilting, snow dyed background fabric.
