julie green: the last supper

I’m absolutely mesmerized by these photos of Oregon artist, Julie Green, giving us a glimpse into the creative and spiritual forces at play in her life and home. Julie’s  as passionate about making art and food, as she is committed to abolishing capital punishment. These fierce dedications are expressed in her ongoing project, The Final Supper: 500 hand-painted porcelain plates, detailing U.S. death row inmates’ final meal requests. There’s a serenity to her aesthetic that counterweights the grim and poignant nature of her subject.

This collection of photos is from Dark Rye a newly launched online magazine that celebrates and pumps the goodness out of  food, art, health and sustainable living. I’m thrilled to discover it—thanks, Kate—and hope you’ll grab a moment to check it out as well! The “urban farming” videos are sparking a tonne of ideas for my tiny plot of unbroken city ground.

Happy Monday, friends. And happy creating!
