for foodies only
Don’t you wish you could insert your finger in your grandmother’s aspic and play with it ? This scarlet gelatinous thing that giggles when you move the plate is just so fascinating. Its true, food, with its diverse textures and colors, can be really amusing to look at.
Brooklyn based artist Jeremy Olson really understood this captivating aspect of food. The way he recreates smoked salmon or ground beef's colors and textures is so perfect that it will generate that same feelings that you felt for your grandmother’s aspic. In his last series, Jeremy painted meat or sticky juice on characters as an attempt to break down the face into a spectrum of beauty that couldn’t cohere into anyone identifiable, simultaneously violent and charming.
