These pieces are about images that I have seen around the world. “Cheese” in particular is a response that I had to yak cheese. Yak cheese is displayed elegantly in Mongolia, Nepal, Bhutan, and elsewhere. I loved everything about it, except the taste. I was drawn to the way it was displayed: hanging on long poles, strung across rafters, in doorways. It was ingeniously made using ancient processes, thoughtfully displayed, beautiful, and tough.
