(11) Cornfield in Turnhout Belgium 1999


54.5 x 67.5 cm

This painting of corn in Turnhout was created when I learnt that corn is grown exclusively as cattle feed. Harvest surplus is destroyed by the European Common Market in order to keep prices fixed. In parts of Africa and Latin America, this surplus of corn can save lives, if transportation and distribution can be arranged.
