I return to this series often. It is about women and therefore about beauty. Food staples (from fruit to bread and fish) represent both the external, giving a sense of place and time, and the internal, becoming a symbol for desire and fear, discontent and satisfaction. One variation on this series is women with unnaturally large insects, with the implication of women as prey and therefore as object of appetite. Another variation is women with seeds, where the symbolism is of fertility, potential, and awakening.
