Play with your food!

We have already written a lot about food and visual arts. Even about the two combined already. But what about visual arts that is made of food? There are a lot of exhibitions and arts works in which artists use food as one or more materials. I came across some while searching on the internet and I find if quite interesting to see. Especially since there is a story behind it. Yes true, this is at almost every art work, but still it seems somewhat more interesting when food is involved to me.

These artists has taken their creativity to a yummy level!

There are even paintings that where all the materials used are made of food products. So has Carl Warner, a photographer based in London, made a so called foodscapes: landscapes made of food. In the picture below, a pea pod boat sails away from a land made of bread and potatoes, over a sea of salmon. Funny huh?!

Some artists are only using them since they do not see the point of wasting it. Which brings them back to our project. Others are doing it because they want to stand out from the crowd. The artists Zoe Leonard made ‘untitled’ are pieces, in which she ate the food products but only left the skin and used this skin to make an art work of it. Everybody is throwing them away, since it is not normal to eat, but she is showing them in another light.

“I was tired of wasting things, throwing things out all the time,” she says, as quoted in the sign listed next to her piece.

So do not listen to your mother and play with your food!
