The toast came about because I wanted to paint something weird and edgy that was ALSO simple and classic. I wanted people to receive a strong message (one they could FEEL on a gut level) without being didactic. I thought, “wouldn’t it be AMAZING to elicit that kind of emotion through a piece of burnt toast – the most relatable & basic cuisine.” How awesome would it be to take a completely un-awesome thing and elevate it. To make people look SO closely at the texture of the bread… to marvel at every crumb. And they did! People even went so far as to personify the toast; they felt it represented them. Perfectly imperfect, delicious and relatable, with a dark side.
