If we are to make the shift from an industrial growth society to a life-sustaining society there are three spheres of action.
Holding actions. These activities include all the political, legislative, and legal work required to reduce the destruction, as well as direct actions-blockades, boycotts, civil disobedience, and other forms of refusal. Work of this kind buys time.
Creation of structural alternatives, the new way of doing things and organising. New ways of growing food, of measuring prosperity, new forms of education.
But these new structures cannot take root and survive unless they are deeply rooted in our values; in our belief in what is worthwhile; in our assumptions about the nature of reality. You can call this a shift in consciousness. – Joanna Macy
It is in this third sphere of action that my work belongs. To heal the separation between nature and humans. To open us up to new ways of perceiving the world.
Art. Food. Feast. An art-filled seasonal vegetarian cookbook
Let’s get reconnected with real food a little more. Let’s become better acquainted with nature, seasons, and flavours via that eating thing we do several times a day. Let’s make this fun!
This is an art meets food project where I perfect seasonal recipes that ‘happen to be vegetarian’ and use these as the inspiration for an accompanying painting. Both are for you to enjoy.
There will be 140 recipes at the end, each with an artwork. 35 per season. All the vegetarian recipes are or will be available online for you to use. Even carnivores should enjoy them. The artworks for each recipe are originals that aim to capture something of the essence of the dish – the taste or origins or history or mythology or ingredients.
The project is currently the main subject for my blog (along with my artist studio updates), so you can easily follow the progress, dish by dish. On completion, all the recipes and paintings will be compiled into a real-world-printed-on-paper cookbook which will be available to purchase.
