Bring Home the Bacon
Stephanie Wilson

Bring Home the Bacon is about an element of society that the artist encounters regularly and find the strangest and also most interesting: corporate and institutional-style interiors. It is a part of society in which they are a willing participant, but also one that they recognise as absurd and lacking value. These paintings take a look at the catering excess that is often encountered in these situations. Inside this bubble, extravagance, excess and wastage is normal, yet outside it appears grotesque. The works may have a familiar feel to some of us and are designed to comment on notions of status, oblivious privilege, human behavior and futility. They know they are not the first person to ask themselves “how did I get here?”.
