Luke Sides has spent the better part of his life eating himself to death. He has consumed enough red meat and pork to clog his arteries to the point of irreversible damage. While eating this food has brought Luke much pleasure and happiness unfortunately Luke must cease and desist the consumption of all things FAT which is Ironic because of his stature…. So, Luke has used food as his main source of inspiration for his sculpture for the past 10 years. What started as adoration for these hedonistic foods has transformed into memorialization but either way these sculptures are a direct reflection of Luke Sides. Oh, Luke Sides received his MFA from the University of North Texas in Denton TX, and has taught full time at Collin College in Plano TX since 2002.
