The Building Blocks of Nutrition

Renee Kovalcheck and Rob Armagno

eXpressions™ Award: Blue Ribbon

Our artwork represents different types of nutrition our bodies receive. Most people don’t receive all the necessary nutrients through their diets. An imbalance in diet can contribute to heart disease, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, heart attack, or stroke. Eating right and getting the proper nutrients are the key building blocks to a healthy heart and lifestyle. The tiles represent the building blocks of nutrition for a healthy heart and also serve as a reminder of the choices we make through our food intake. The varying heights in tiles represent the different amounts of food needed to obtain a healthy diet.

Food: The Way We Eat

Katie Crowe

eXpressions™ Award: Red Ribbon

This piece of artwork represents people’s daily nutrition. My piece represents how each person eats and how it affects the body. The miniature food pyramids represent the healthy food that we eat. The colors of the triangles are pastel colors to represent fruits and vegetables, while the larger triangles and darker colors represent the unhealthy foods we eat. The purpose of the triangles is to show that the food pyramid can be divided into many different sections, for this reason all the triangles are at different levels.

eXpressions™ Award: White Ribbon

Cut pieces of foam core are painted and layered in the box. Although the inspiration for this piece lies in the vibrant colors and shapes of fruits and vegetables and their positive effect on the body, the ultimate purpose for the materials and their composition in this piece is to transcend my own personal perspective and intentions and provide something unique to each individual viewer. I hope the viewer will glean some sense of what lies behind the piece, but ultimately I just want them to be captivated, interested, and perhaps in some way inspired. Make of it what you will.

Seeing Nutrition Through Color and Reflection

Alyssa Soukup and Grace King

eXpressions™ Award: Honorable Mention

Our piece of art uses nutrition with reflection and color. Instead of using actual pictures of food we decided to represent the food through bold colors. The darker the color, the more unhealthy the food is for us. The brighter/lighter colors represent the healthier foods. The man about to run up the set of stairs is striving to become a healthier person (hence running up the staircase, rather than down). We decided to use the tin foil as a background because the way we eat reflects the health of our bodies.
