Background, history, commissioner of the work

This is a studio piece about cocoa beans and my love of chocolate. It relates to the work Coffee/Plastic. It has been exhibited several times and shown at the Art Hound Gallery, Cambridge.

Thematic/contextual information

The theme of this work is the conflict between loving chocolate and being aware of the environmental demands that the plant requires when grown as a monocrop. This is a study of the bean as it grows on the plant.
