6 Jun

So excited to be blogging again (!!!) and what better way to start than by sharing the work of  an incredible food artist and fine artist Sarah Hardy. If I tell you she gained her skills in in wax-work museums, and as a internationally recognised fine artist, you can guess the quality of the edible fossil pieces Essex based Sarah accurately reproduces in the finest dark, milk & white Belgium Chocolate.

These incredible museum quality edible fossils are created with intricate casting and hand-painted detail – creating ultimate collectors items not novelty chocolate. With the largest fossil – the Megalodon Tooth – weighing in at 120g and a whopping 14cm long. 2 hours are spent hand finishing each one to the finest detail with a 11cm long T Rex Tooth and collectors box of 16 separate fossils also in the collection.

IT GETS EVEN BETTER…  Sarah has even created edible decapitated human heads from cake for international film companies and even a raw turkey cake which went on to be an online viral hit, food artist. Now she (& I) are dreaming of the day she gets to create a life sized T Rex Skull in chocolate.

A gallery of some more of her work is below – remember that all of the below are cakes or in the case of the anatomical heart chocolate…

Ultimate Gravestone

15 Aug

This is an amazing gravestone, commissioned by the spouse of Laurence Matheson, to show her love for him, after he died. There are a LOT of people online who hate this but I think it is wonderful and I am sure would have made Laurence very happy indeed.

Sexy fetishy contortionist

Russian born, 24 year old contortionist Zlata has a rather large fan base and it is not difficult to see why. AKA Rubber Girl, she has a unique condition where by her ligaments have the elasticity and pliability of a newborn baby. She can even fold her 5ft 9 frame to fit within a 50cm box.

Blood script

21 Aug

As much as it pains me to say this is why I hate extreme feminism – I mean for…

Blood Script was a live performance piece that took place at the PULSE Art Fair at Pier 40 in New York City, New York in 2008. The artist meticulously documented inscriptions from three previous Marker (DC, NYC and Madrid) Performances and compiled a list of over 200 hateful words and phrases written on me, by viewers, in various languages. For Blood Script, the artist had 75 of the most common words tattooed onto her skin, without ink, in a very ornate script. Using decorative letters, she created a dichotomy between the beautiful visual form of the words and the ugly meanings they convey semantically. Contact prints were made of each word by immediately pressing watercolor paper against the fresh incisions. The mirror image of the word was imprinted on the paper in blood. The elaborate script initially engages viewers in the optical challenge of identifying each tattooed insult. The recognition of each word stimulates viewers to reflect upon the significance of what the insult means to them. This dynamic process mediates a silent dialogue between the artist and the audience as the performance progresses.

Fetishy converse

16 Aug

London based Performance artist Davide Allieri created these conceptual high-heeled Converse for one of his pieces – Precision Impression 4″ ( the fourth chapter in the series). I am trying to fall in love with this art form (currently don’t feel it) with incoming cupcake catapult activities so here is the full blurb from the artist:

I’m creating the clothes and the objects to use during the new work called “Precision Impression 4” ( the fourth chapter in the series).
The work will include: performance, wall drawings, objects and clothes. Each of these exhibited in a single installation.
I ll wear: high heel all star, jeans, a white tuxedo jacket, a leather corset, some straps-leashes and a falconry glove.
I ll use two big stamps with graphite powder to make drawings on the wall.

(as you do)
