thirteen years of living and working in different continents Rob van Doeselaar returned to the Netherlands
and painted his evening meals. After all, food is one of
the most important things in life.
Coming from far it is quite a contrast to experience the
Western way of consuming food. You can buy any type of food every
day. Cooking Mexican, Italian, Thai or Japanese food does not pose any
problem. Supermarkets are highly developed in marketing. As a customer
you are bombarded with customer cards, coupons, buy one get one
free, a gift when you buy some brand of cookies, and so on. It all appeals to the hunter in ourselves. You
hardly ever buy any product for the full price.
Hunger is one of the main problems in our world. Food also plays a role as the engine of the economy. We are what we eat.
