Mia Brownell’s incredibly intricate canvases focus on primal questions about food – how it is grown to how it functions as a signifier in society – with a particular focus on scientific invention. If we are what we eat, then we can look to our food, how it is processed, shared, and consumed, for clues about ourselves and what we may become.
Set against a backdrop of classical still-life 17th century Dutch realism, but with a modern, scientific, almost sci-fi approach, Brownell’s work weaves culture, science, and environmental issues surrounding the global industrial food complex. In this new series, the artist adds leaves to her vocabulary of spiraling, clusters of organic food matter to inspire a new color palette and point symbolically to the notion of transition and collective mutation.
