  6. Anke Eilergerhard’s Cake-like Sculptures Unpack Ideas About Gender

    by James Scarborough Posted on April 17, 2014

    Berlin-based artist Anke Eilergerhard makes sculptures from pigmented silicon that take the cake. She transforms Wayne Thiebaud’s Pop cakes into powerful generators of feminine identity (Scott Hove’s monstrous, fanged cakes also come to mind). Some pieces look like traditional wedding cakes. Others look like Meret Oppenheim and Leonora Carrington got together to design them. She examines the forms and, especially, the surfaces of these cakes and cake-like objects. The first impression of the work is quirky and idiosyncratic, lighter than air. Upon closer examination, though, some work looks dangerous. These cakes look fluffy and innocuous. In reality, they serve as a weapon to fight obsolete ideas of feminine identity based solely on beauty.

    With its formal and symbolic qualities, silicon suits her subject matter. It’s fast drying like acrylic paint. It’s easy to manage. And it encourages the delicate flourishes and spontaneous gestures of cake frosting. She ascribes a symbolic meaning to it. In an interview, she discusses silicon’s role in the beauty industry, as an enhancer of beauty as well as a masker of blemishes.

    She draws inspiration from the kitchen. By her own admission, the kitchen is a symbol of a traditional female identity. The kitchen also provides the colors and shapes that interest her. By casting traditional subjects in an unexpected material, she explores ideas of beauty as well as of decay. Marriages, after all, are often as ephemeral as the scrumptious cakes that commemorate them. Beauty, like everything else, decays over time.

    Her subject matter may be un-monumental but the issues she broaches are profound. She gives a new meaning to culinary art. She explores traditional – some may say anachronistic – ideas of beauty. She takes these ideas at face value. She engages them; she exaggerates them; and she exploits them. The result is a body of work that is as provocative as it is delicious.

  7. Miguel Payano: Koicocks

    Miguel Payano translates the qualities most celebrated in traditional Chinese Gongbi paintings, reinterpreting the majestic movement and poise of the creatures in his own visual language.The American Dominican artist’s fluency in the Chinese language, combined with his extensive study of its history and culture, had enabled him to fully acclimate to China’s rapidly changing environment. His love affair with the Chinese culture sinks deep into his works and enriches his imagination, originality and vivacity.

    In this dramatic capture by Ryan Shepard, we see a supercell thunderstorm never Ovid, Colorado on 28 May 2013.

    A supercell is a thunderstorm that is characterized by the presence of a mesocyclone: a deep, persistently rotating updraft. Of the four classifications of thunderstorms (supercell, squall line, multi-cell, and single-cell), supercells are the least common and have the potential to be the most severe. Supercells are often isolated from other thunderstorms, and can dominate the local climate up to 32 kilometres (20 mi) away. [source]

    Supercells can occur anywhere in the world under the right pre-existing weather conditions, but they are most common in the Great Plains of the United States in an area known as Tornado Alley and in the plains of Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil. [source]


  10. Yuichi Ikehata

    “The world of reality and non-reality. They are very intimate, so it is not too much to say that they are almost one. We touch non-reality with reality as a key and sometimes touch reality using a key of non-reality. Reality is beautiful, sad, funny and completed, but happens nothing there. Fragments that cut out of reality already show a fictitious world. I collect the fragments, edit, arrange and capture them. It is just a “pure myth.” – Artist’s Statement

  15. Erwin Wurm

    Erwin Wurm is known for his humorous approach to formalism. About the use of humor in his work, Wurm says in an interview: “If you approach things with a sense of humor, people immediately assume you’re not to be taken seriously. But I think truths about society and human existence can be approached in different ways. You don’t always have to be deadly serious. Sarcasm and humor can help you see things in a lighter vein Erwin Wurm (born 1954) is an Austrian artist born in Bruck an der Mur / Styria. He currently lives and works in Vienna and Limburg, Austria
