These paintings exist in a dream world where the women are so big, such giantesses, nothing can hurt them anymore.


They eat, and they eat, and they eat. 


They grow, and they grow, and they grow.

I imagine them this way: One girl’s hunger stirs the other’s appetite. The more one eats, the more the other craves. So they eat, and eat, and eat. Lips crashing up and down like violent waves, tearing through hangers, sofas, sunglasses, lipstick, platform heels, trucks, teakettles, bike chains, flower petals, throw pillows, tractors, diamond rings, lightbulbs, glowing screens, power cords, jean jackets, and flesh.
