Practice 54. (The Waste of One, The Treasure of Many ) 

Natural pigments from black beans, avocado, carrots, oranges and red cabbage on wood panels, 5 plants and sprouts from black beans, avocado, carrots, oranges and red cabbage 

(2 60x60cm, 60x90cm)



 As I live and work in the same space, the lines between kitchen, garden, and creative space blur on a daily basis turning the space into a field of investigation. These circumstances have inspired me to transform the organic waste that I consume into natural pigments to paint with.  As I deconstruct each food into a variety of colors, I have also been experimenting and replanting my own food scraps and seeds. I observe how seeds sprout and generate new colors, ideas, and eventually, ink.

I think of this practice as promoting the cycles of interdependence between the human and the non-human that make life and color possible on the planet.
