This is a family lunch on the occasion on some occasion. Regretably, family celebrations often turn into a big excessive eating . The consumerist spirit of modern society forces the abundance of food and overeating as a measure of enjoyment.
This is my only painting done in this pointillist manner, which came naturally, and as a result of my search for the most direct method to paint what i have envisioned .The memory of my Family's feasts lingered as a hazy picture in my mind. The grotesquerie in teh painting reveals the personal relation with the subject and my commentary on the personalityof the portrayed. I leave it to the viewer to come up with his own stories about this family's sunday lunch meetings.
