Although Pamela Michelle Johnson's work reflects a North American tendency towards overindulgence and over-consumption, the realism of her paintings cannot help but draw us in. Attracted by the simple beauty of single images, we eat it up: Johnson's work is like a quick fix. Only when we are left with the detritus of our greed can we stand back and see that the scale and quantities are designed to mimic our habits and weaknesses. Our comfort foods can turn against us.
