Lucent Fruit | In the kitchen, slicing a grapefruit, I saw the most wondrous organic patterns and colors. I could not look away. I began photographing them and creating prints on a variety of different surfaces (a variety of paper, limestone, transfer on encaustic, transparency plastic and silk. The silk created a translucency that none of the other approaches provided. The creation of the artwork is a meditation on the simplest of food preparation tasks and the noticing that comes with being fully present.
