ShoeStories™ by Claudia Lynch
"You want chopsticks?"
You have no idea, I thought. I stared down at the pair she offered me, desperate to figure out how to translate what I was thinking into something she'd understand.
She read my face --- or thought she did. "Don't worry," she said quietly, "I show you what to do with them."
Sometimes it was hard to believe my good fortune.
Chopsticks (Chinese Food) Shoe
Gicleé print, signed & matted — $75
Every shoe tells a story — The characters on the "spoon" and the red food carton say "Chinese Food" in Chinese. Don't you love how she's crossing her "legs" and showing off her red stilettos?
The show theme was "Food + Drink". I created this Chopsticks Shoe, a Bagel + Coffee Shoe, and a Waitress-in-a-Greasy-Spoon Shoe.
