My name is Megan Fizell and I am Sydney-based art historian and writer concerned with the representation of food in the visual arts. After completing a Master’s degree at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London, I worked in galleries in London and Sydney and currently hold the position of Gallery Manager at Brenda May Gallery.

My interest still life paintings began with a paper about Manet’s Fish (Still Life) for my Art Postseminar at University. Although still life paintings are viewed as a dated genre, I find the underlying dialogue between society and their material possessions relevant to contemporary life. Starting in 2012, I began curating exhibitions at Brenda May Gallery in Sydney around the themes of food and art. The first show, titled Art + Food: Beyond the Still Life, considered the representation of food beyond the standard still life tableaux. The next exhibition, titled Sugar, Sugar, in October 2013 featured art made exclusively with sugar.
