ARTmonday: Amy Stevens Cake Photos

I just finished putting together a sidebar of affordable art picks for the May issue of HGTV Magazine. It will accompany the feature on our Boston condo, which will focus on our art, which is everywhere. They chose 8 affordable artworks out of 25 choices I provided, so there were a lot of leftovers. I’ll eventually post all 25 picks, but in the meantime here is an expanded look at artist Amy Stevens’ cake photographs.

Stevens cake photo series, called Confections, started in 2005 as a response to her 30th birthday. She says, “It was a celebration of birthdays, color, pattern, and obsessive absurdity.”

Her original idea was to bake 30 birthday cakes for herself and photograph them. She ordered a cake decorating kit online, watched an instructional video, and quickly discovered her cakes were going to be imperfect. She decided to leave them in what she describes as “their exuberantly imperfect states.”

In the course of eight years, the series evolved into more of a humorous, feminist, conversation on life and the struggle for perfection. Amy Stevens is based in Berks County, Pennsylvania, earned a BFA from Arizona State, and an MFA from Temple University.

ARTmonday: 20 Fun Food Artworks

With all the food art I perused to put together last week’s 20 Autumnal Artworks in honor of Thanksgiving along with the post I did for Matouk, Appreciating Autumn Through Art, I noticed there were quite a few examples of humorous, fun food artworks. You may not want to eat anything after this weekend, but there’s no harm in looking. Some of it may even inspire you to try snapping fun food artworks yourself, at least on Instagram.

ARTmonday: Still Life Photographs by Anna Williams

This morning when I was looking for art to share with you, I came across a photo I had put assigned labeled Anna Williams “Seeking.” When I Googled Anna Williams, this Brooklyn-based photographer’s work came up. Not the Anna Williams from UGallery I had been searching for, but another photographer named Anna Williams.

This Anna Williams shoots lush still lifes, often of sensuous food, as well as quiet, rich interiors. She’s assisted Stephen Lewis, Bill Abranowicz and Gentl + Hyers, and has shot campaigns for Michael Kors and Williams Sonoma, as well as editorial for Martha Stewart, Real Living, and Food & Wine.

Her work is beautiful, so, proving detours can be very good, I thought I’d share. Here are 10 works by photographer Anna Williams.

ARTmonday: Laura Letinksy Still Life Photographs

Canadian-born, Chicago-based photographer Laura Letinksy is a master at understated still life photos that celebrate the remnants of meals at a table. At first glance, the pastel colors and sometimes almost abstract forms at inviting. On closer inspection, you see that the subjects have been picked at, pulled apart, and generally abandoned, awaiting cleanup at a later time. Nevertheless, Letinsky’s photos are beautiful.

It’s no surprise that Laura Letinsky has long been intrigued with Dutch-Flemish and Italian still life paintings. In 1997, she started a series of 4″ x 5″ photographs that were experimental elaborations of details from an earlier series about couples. She noticed that they depicted scenes  of meals she had prepared and consumed–after the fact. She describes them as “unexpectedly beautiful tableaux of dirty dishes and messy counter-tops,” noting that the formal arrangements were “almost classical in an art-historical way.” Indeed, there were also “assemblages of completely banal personal details of appetites, habits, and implements.”

Over the years she has continued the project, photographing tables in New Haven, Rome, Berlin, and Chicago. Rather than romanticizing the gorgeousness of uneaten food, she is “curious about those domestic objects and spaces that are touched, devoured, and discarded.”

Letinsky, who received her M.F.A from Yale in 1991 is a professor at the University of Chicago. She is represented in NYC by the Yancey Richardson Gallery, and other fine galleries around the world. Here is a sampling of her work, starting with a piece from 2009, going back to a 1998 work.
