Weighing Parsnips (Framed)


Weighing Parsnips (Framed)


Winter Vegetables Series

This image originally appeared in "Eat Your Veggies" a multi-artist exhibition at Studio 126 in Vancouver. When contemplating and preparing works for this exhibition, I was struck that we were in the dead of winter, when relatively speaking, vegetables are scarce. I selected winter vegetables and shot them in a somewhat bleak, dark setting to reflect the time of year. The pops ofcolour in the muted background emphasize the colour, both literally and figuratively that vegetables bring to our meals and lives at this darkest time of year. In “Weighing Parsnips”, I chose the scale to connote the value of vegetables, par ticularly lately, when we are facing higher prices, while the human hand reminds us that it is often a farmer or supplier that is key to bringing these beauties to us. Ultimately these works celebrate the beauty of vegetables and of the natural world.
