"Teetering towers of hamburgers, drippy stacks of syrupy waffles, sticky piles of sugary candy... Junk food. It's the taste of America. It is what we eat. It is who we are. The insatiable American appetite is set on a path of consumption. Devouring to the point where we are left with nothing, nothing but the consequential garbage." -Pamela Johnson

I find the work of this artist to be amazing. Here paintings are enormous and so full of realistic detail. Specifically, this painting is 72x42".  I can't imagine the amount of work that goes in to each of her pieces. I also really like the concept of her drawing. She uses her artistic ability to send a message to American culture and really makes a statement.
