Oil on Canvas
24 in. x 24 in.
Comfort Food, Kalem’s 24 x 24-inch oil on canvas piece for Cognitive Dissonance Illustrates the struggle of the dilemma between eating junk and processed food in response to emotional distress and the perceived healthier values and principles that go against it.
“Have you ever felt the need to eat in response to emotional distress? While eating junk and processed foods may not be healthy, sometimes you just need to eat the food that you like to feel good. The feeling that you get when you eat, kickstarts that temporary relief from a few of life’s challenges.”
