“Basalt Causeway” (burnt sugar) by Ruth Tabancay

Why food?  I am asked all of the time.  Food & art are connected as inspiration, nourishment & care-giving.  Food is ripe with meaning.  My developing palate & the evolution of my culinary abilities (and responsibilities), as well as my attitude about the suitability of food, echo my growth through the years as an artist and arts administrator –all marking the passage of time. That’s why.

“I am attracted to objects that are already
infused with meaning.”

The most recent work of today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Ruth Tabancay, features the installation of burnt sugar forms that slowly melt during their installation.  Sugar marking the passage of time, marking the beautiful fluidity, ignoring your impatience or desire to know the destination.  Beautiful.

Be patient.  Take your time.  Enjoy the work of AAAD Artist of the Day, Ruth Tabancay!
