Still life paintings examine questions that surrounding capital punishment, redemption, and our shared humanity. Eerily intimate, final meal requests are cooked and consumed by the artist to form the photographic compositions of the paintings.

Paintings from the series have been exhibited throughout the United States and Canada. while selected works have been published in international editions of Wired and GQ magazines.
