Utensil 6

Piece description from the artist

While "Utensil" began with numerous studies of kitchen utensils, I reinterpreted their color, reflections and patterns to develop the series' abstractions. To me, kitchen utensils represent the basic tools required to create delectable cuisine, and memories of preparing for family gatherings and celebratory life experiences. I use the series to glorify them from the basic objects that they seem to be when standing on their own.
