 Expressions Around the Table  is a remembrance of foods not rooted in artifice and asserts a bond between ancestral table aesthetics, food, and human nature. These foods have a reminiscence of primordial essence, representative of time and collective memory.

These foods live innumerable lives, yet they carry a given meaning. Their nature is pure and still possesses meaningful relations. They relate to an universal ideology because of the cultural values that have been imposed on them. But as these foods may not have their own cultural meaning, they have their own form of reality: an essence that challenges these beliefs. Their essence is to create, heal, and feed life and death.

These foods possess a spiritual primitiveness and unconscious unity with life through body, mind, and soul. Their pure and organic form is the true expression of life’s inter-related wholeness. These foods are archetypes of shapes and processes and further offer the promise of consumption.
