Lindsay Stern
Work Statement
All of my images are reflective of an emotional and cultural life rooted in the kitchen - a place where eating can equally be a necessity, joy, and transgression. I am admittedly consumed by the ambiguous slippage between supposed binaries: desire and disgust; pleasure and pain; access and denial. These binaries are elaborated on through my exploration of familial relationships and human-animal dynamics. Sourcing imagery from cookbooks, fashion magazines, health manuals, and articles on global politics, I collage because it is a medium that invites viewers to simultaneously assemble and deconstruct disparate parts to make meaning.
