True Love (2013)

We often expect people around us to match our own standards and hope that the relationship will work out; however, reality proves that relationships aren’t so simple. My artwork utilizes potatoes and tomatoes to portray human beings’ relationships. As illustrated, potatoes and tomatoes are different in shape, color, and texture. Hence, when the two try to recklessly come together, not only will they fail to fuse but the tomato is likely to get a bruise or even explode. However, their compromise – the potato frying itself to become French fries and the tomato grinding itself to become ketchup – allows them to become the perfect set.
