a consuming desire


I seem to be blogging a lot recently about exhibitions I've seen and the work of other artists. Hopefully it makes up for the lack of interesting stuff being made in my studio. (What am I working on, you ask? Mostly order fulfillment. But I digress...)

Last night, I went to the opening for April Wood's graduate thesis, A Consuming Desire. April was the only graduate student when I started teaching at Towson, and she made my transition so much easier. April's thesis explores peoples' relationships to food, eating, and sexuality. Her exhibition was a lovely installation incorporating metal, gut, beeswax, vintage furniture and linens, and food stuff. Congratulations, April!

To view more images of April's work, visit her flickr site.
