Put your art-buying money where your heart is, into food-themed paintings. We encountered this Seattle-based artist a while back, always on a search for the next Pierre Bonnard... In fact we are always in search of artists depicting food plants, dishes, farming, gardening, and food preparation.
( Bonnard's paintings often featured people eating, or settings in which they were about to eat or had just eaten...)
Patianne Stevenson says she has a passion for "all thing kitchen." Explore her work and see what you think.
NEW INFO added July 27: We emailed Patianne to get more background about what she does and why she does it. ( Among other things, she does art on commission.) Here's her response:
"I am a true foodie. I love the quote you use on the Museum website from M.F.K. Fisher. I actually have it written on the project board in my studio, along with another favorite quote from Alan Richman: "Food is life. The rest is parsley." He is also one of my favorite food writers. However, I may have to change it to "Food is Life. The rest is art!" I think he will forgive me.
