There is an element of performance in these. Process is more important than the finished product as it confirms the transformation from subject to object. More than portraits they are biographies or interviews. That transformation, physical and philosophical, of meat as art, meat as food, subsistence and culture, meat as sexuality, meat as death and birth. Besides painting, process is the initial selection and purchase of the subject and its final preparation and consumption. For pleasure or survival, another process begins. The work is not a character-study which objectifies an interview which recollects an individual history.
