Painting Without Paintbrush: 32 Days of Creativity

Written by Guest Blogger Indre Blauzdziunaite

“Hi! I’m Hong Yi, I’m an artist-architect who likes to paint, but not with a paintbrush” – claims Malaysian artist, which goes by the nickname Red.  She started the project “31 Days of Creativity with Food” out of curiosity to be creative by working within the confines of a plate with just food as her ink. She ended up defining social political issues of Malaysia in combinations of rice, cucumbers and soya sauce.

…………….

Tea, and story telling are soul mates. That is why Petra Storrs and Rachel Snider have made an inspired ode to these Bfs. In this series we see a labor of love and playfulness that I think any tea company would be sad they didn’t think of it first.  A girl stands in a giant tea cup, dressed in blue and white body suit motif, with a metal breastplate resembling a custom tea globe, tea bag rabbit ears and a body sized tea spoon. It is absolutely charming, and makes me want the perfect cup of Royal Doulton tea.

Stefanie Herr

Topographic Food Art

"Mat board and photographic prints layers on layers on layers, are what Stephanie Herr uses to create her signature topographic maps. In this good-enough-to-eat looking photo series Herr depicts styrofoam packaged foods in her signature art form. This German born artist living and working in Spain, has a passion for model making and the architectural design process. We sure hope there will be many more culinary inspired topographs by Stephanie Herr.”

Cook It Raw is the one of the most highly lauded culinary gatherings in the world. Founder Alessandro Porcelli thinks of Cook It Raw as a collaboration among chefs bringing their ingredients to the most primal form of existence and to appreciate the art of each element. It is a great honor for a chef to be invited to this yearly conference held in a different location every year, and it all began in one of the trendiest food cities, Copenhagen. René Redzepi of Noma describes the event as, “boy scouts going to camp. Learning to tie new knots and see new places in the world and then seeing how we can bring back what we learnt and use it in our own kitchens.” Porcelli set out to instill the primal food instincts of hunting and gathering back into some of the worlds most renowned culinary artists such as: Albert Adria, Alex Atala, Pascal Barbot, Massimo Bottura, David Chang, and René Redzepi. This stunning 208 page book documents this event through Denmark, Lapland, Italy, and Japan. The gathering leads up to one finale gala where the chefs show off their dishes created solely from ingredients in the surrounding land, sourced, gathered, and cooked by each master chef. This is not just a boys club Slovenian chef Ana Ros was the first female to attend the event in Poland we know there will be a lot more to come.”

Found in Nature

My work takes me into marginal areas. The areas between water and land, road and forest, the abandoned beaches, parking lots and overgrown public areas; these are my destinations. I have been mesmerized by the miniature world within a three-foot wide strip of weeds on a road in rural Michigan, and by the fresh layers of flotsam covering a beach after a storm. The resources are endless.

From these marginal places, I extract and I organize. Forms to come into view. Themes emerge. Raw materials are mined and later refined into photographs. I have a partner among the weeds and the detritus that live in these margins. They sustain me and challenge me to go further. They are easy to miss. I feel lucky to have seen them.”

Ponder Food as Love

………………………….

Ponder food as love—to nurture and to feast upon.

The body becomes serving plate, altar, banquet and booty. Still life transforms into emotional landscape as the line between serving and self blurs. After countless hours at the kitchen counter preparing food for our families, we began to investigate the delicate and compelling nature of nurturing.

As Pablo Neruda writes of “…the transmigration of dream into salad” so, too, do these images hover between the earth and transcendence.

Menno Aden

Berlin-based photographer Menno Aden takes typical rooms and interior settings and turns them into mind-altering viewing experiences which can conjure feelings of vertigo. He’s able to distort perception by installing cameras on the ceilings of interior spaces, such as classrooms, elevators, and corner shops, in the process transforming a simple room with a circular table into an abstract and graphic work of art.
