From Don’t Panic:

How would you react to analyses of your work as a commentary on American over-consumption and endless binge culture?

I hear this analysis often, however, my intent with my subject matter is not to discuss American over-consumption per se. The paintings, on a literal (and slightly narrow) level discuss women’s issues with food and compulsive eating. In a broader sense they discuss compulsive behavior in general – the distraction that’s involved in the act of it, the waste (both in regard to actual material waste and to energy/time waste) that is the result of it. I do believe over-consumption is a compulsive behaviour – a behaviour that we use to “check out”; to distract ourselves from sitting with discomfort.
