Camilla Wordie Creates Edible Textiles

Camila Wordie-Design Camila Wordie-Design Camilla Wordie

Food art is back from the dead! And you thought that those crazy Fluxus artists from the 60’s were long gone…

Scandinavian artist Camilla Wordie creates textiles out of textures found in our daily eats. Her project is a synthesis of her love for both the culinary world and the arts. Edible textiles extends from Wordie’s other food-related productions (Am I chocolate or not? and Wearing Rice is Nice) which include tableware inspired by grains of rice and tables made of chocolate powder.

Contemporary Paintings Of Women, Occasionally Nude, Sometimes With Food

Megan Van Groll - PaintingMegan Van Groll - Painting

Megan Van Groll paints women– mediating on the fine line between nakedness and nudity, or how these two concepts relate to freedom or identity. Likewise, from bathing in cocoa puffs to sensually brawling at a donut shop, her food motif is an interesting one, often working in tandem with the female form– provoking thoughts of fetish from the outside, but also, a much more personal and complicated binging ceremony.

Of her own craft, Groll states, “My narrative portraits of women are, at their core, a painted attempt to understand and portray how modern women create identity and meaning from the world around them. I am interested in exploring the way we perform our projected ideal personas, for ourselves and for others.”

Powerfully Political Art Made From Food

The artwork created by the Japanese art collective known as Three creates work with a political subtext as powerful as it is subtle.  Three often uses common food objects such as fish shaped soy sauce packets or candy.  For example, the installation Eat Me uses 7,000 wrapped candy pieces hung from the gallery ceiling in the shape of a house.  Visitors are encouraged to pluck candy from the installation and toss the wrapper in a corner set aside in the gallery.  Slowly throughout the day the ‘house’ of candy is transformed into a pile of trash – a symbolic recreation of the overwhelming destruction of homes by Japan’s 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Beth Galton‘s series Cut Food is a side of food photography rarely seen – the inside.  Galton is a prolific photographer specializing in food.  While she works primarily in advertising and commercial photography, Cut Food is one of several conceptual projects from Galton.  The series captures common foods, though some not so commonly sliced in half.  Canned soups and a cup of coffee seem to rest perfectly in half of a container.  In order to catch some of these Galton replaced the liquids in the foods with a gelatin.

Pantone Pairings for the Hungry from David Schwen

Designer David Schwen presents some interesting ‘Pantone’ pairings here.  Rather than pairing complimentary colors, Schwen combines inseparable snacks.  Designers constantly coordinate toward aesthetic perfection.  These ‘swatches’ coordinate a much more common but no less perfect pairing.  That said, our pursuits may be mundane, but still, we have a bit of designer in each of us.

Garth and Pierre’s Geometric Vintage Food

Garth and Pierre are an artistic team based out of Washington state, for their series MENU they appropriated nostalgic imagery of restaurants, kitchens, and table settings to explore the perceptions and politics surrounding food. The artists use geometric shapes cut into the image by hand, leaving the viewer with a lace-like grid of highly graphic saturated colors that allude to a romanticized era that has long since passed.
