This drawing combines food items intermingled with human appendages in a confusing and tense culinary scene. The artist’s use of thin, directional pencil lines creates a sense of hurried motion, while simultaneously evoking cubist compositions of the early 20th century. This composition uses food as material for both linguistic and formal play.

Alexa Hawksworth's drawings feature fantastical scenes teeming with anticipation and mystique. Characters twist and turn as though viewed through a psychological strobe. Elastic figures perform as Janus-faced avatars in pursuit of self-expression, individuation and aspiration—ever caught up in the ego’s anxious negotiations. Hawksworth's works are at once alluring and playfully off-kilter.
