Mud Cookies by Patricia Turner

 info@patriciaandersonturner.com

I made a piece this year about hunger in Haiti called “Mud Cookies”.  It was at the Mancuso World show and the Mancuso Florida show.

It is based on a photo I saw in Nat’l Geographic by AP photographer Ariana Cubillos whom I contacted and got permission to use for the basis of my work.  Women in Haiti mix dirt and clay with salt and shortening to make mud cookies which is a food staple for Haiti’s poor.
I learned a lot about Haiti from my correspondence with Ariana and I think Doctors Without Borders does wonderful work there.
