Megan Fizell, curator of the upcoming Mouthfeel exhibition at the Brenda May Gallery, Sydney, is dedicated to researching the use of food as a topic and medium in contemporary art. She explains: 'In my opinion, the major difference in the handling of the theme by men and women is that men often utilize food in their work for the material's specific characteristics whereas women regularly use food in order to harness the sociocultural associations linked to the material.' .... James Ostrer uses food provocatively and personally as a reaction against sugar addiction, something Megan Fizell also explored in her Sugar Sugar group exhibition.
