Taste Of America

Yummy. Salivating over these delicious paintings, it brings us back in time when we indulged on junk food for some quick gratification... well, for most of us. Upon reading Pamela Michelle Johnson's statement about the insatiable American appetite, I will never look at junk food the same way again. Here's a glimpse of Pamela's statement "I strive to invoke refection on a culture focused on mass-consumption and mass-production, where the negative aspects of overindulgence are often forgotten or ignored. The work questions a culture that equates fulfillment, pleasure and happiness with what we consume." Please read the full artist statement about social relevance with American consumption through her website and enjoy additional work.
