Food Artwork

by Betsy DiJulio

Alimentum is delighted to feature the beautiful art of Betsy DiJulio. By way of introducing it, Betsy writes, "In my visually- and conceptually-layered artwork, realistically painted objects in unnatural relationships to each other are not so much surrealistic as metaphorical. Though intensely personal, even private, these mixed-media pieces hopefully connect at every level with universal themes of family traditions, gender, reproduction, creativity, compassion, and food as both sustenance and ideology."
