The topic of women and food can be a touchy one, so it is fascinating to see painter Samantha Hahn approach the subject. Hahn’s works are bold statements with very clear visuals, yet there is, at the same time, room for interpretation. Examining why and how we eat is key, and there is no shortage of emotion and reasoning involved. No doubt viewers will see these three provocative paintings quite differently. Some will question their own relationships with food, others will be cynical, or perhaps disgusted, some will sigh and wish we could all simply enjoy our food – but all will react in some way.
