Here at The ‘Gig, where we only write about things that we love, we especially love to write about Food and Art. And on the rare occasion when the two worlds collide, it is an act of pure kismet which we simply must share with you. In this case, we recently received a review copy of Curious Feast: 100 Food Art Postcards, which — if you love food and art — is the most fantastic thing you can imagine owning.
Cards By Alex Proba. Tell Me That The Donut Doesn’t Remind You Of an Anish Kapoor.
Curious Feast includes a set of 10 postcards each by 10 different artists, all packaged in a collectible, full color postcard box format, to keep them clean and organized. Each featured artist specializes in food-related art, whether it’s a realistic bowl of Ramen, a surreal mashup of different foods (See above photo), a sculpture that looks good enough to eat, a joke (like spaghetti western — HA), or a hand-written recipe.
Artists included in Curious Feast are Naz Sahin Ozcan (curator), Alex Proba, Brest Brest Brest, Caren Alpert, Melinda Josie, Patricia Curtan, Michele Humes, Mimi O Chun, Wijnand Warendorf, and Joel Penkman. If these artists are new to you, this set provides an ideal introduction to their work.
I realize that Christmas is still a few months away, but Curious Feast would make the best gift ever for the Art Foodie in your life. You know I’m right. Curious Feast: 100 Postcards by 10 Artists (from Princeton Architectural Press) is available now at Amazon Dot Com!
