Christopher Chiappa’s Eggs-cellent Livestrong Eggs-hibit!

Room of Eggs
I’m So Eggs-cited…(All Photos By Gail)

For his third solo show at Kate Werble Gallery, artist Christopher Chiappa presented a new body of work in its entirety; a series of 7,000 handmade fried egg sculptures that completely invaded the gallery’s two rooms, and every nook and cranny in between. Entitled Livestrong, after cyclist Lance Armstrong’s bright yellow, rubber slogan-bracelet campaign, the show was both visually delightful and a bit overwhelming to experience.

Chiappa created the eggs in his studio over a period of five years from cast, poured, sanded and painted plaster. Each egg has a slightly toasted edge and a glossy sheen — like the perfectly prepared, over easy egg.

The attention to detail given to the installation of the eggs was absolutely meticulous. They are just everywhere.

And when I say the eggs were everywhere, I mean all over. Here they are on, around and dripping off of the reception desk.

Unbelievable. It was fun to spot them!


They had a mind of their own!

Lady With Eggs

This woman was actually scolded for stepping too far into this room, where access was restricted, and with good reason. I heard one of the gallerists mention that they were doing their best to stay vigilant at keeping folks from stepping on the eggs as they walked through the gallery rooms, in order to keep each egg in as pristine condition as possible, as the exhibit is moving on to another location after it closed at Kate Werble on Saturday (January 9th). Check out Christopher Chiappa’s website at This Link to find out where that location might be.

Bacon never looked so stylish! In this photo, you can see that the Breakfast Princess has on a rocking outfit, representing all of your favorite breakfast foods, including Eggs (Face, Hair, Shoes), Buttered Toast (Blouse), Pancakes (Skirt) and, most importantly, Bacon (Hair Ribbons and Belt)! And look how friendly she seems! I am so hungry now.

The Pope resigns today at 2:00 PM Eastern Time. File this news under “In Memory of When I Cared.” Love the image, though! Eggs wearing tiny Pope Hats – so cute!

Heart Shaped Bacon for Valentine’s Day Breakfast!

Here’s How to Make it!

  • You will need 12 slices of bacon to make 12 hearts.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC).
  • Cut your bacon slices in half.
  • Use 2 pieces of the cut in half bacon and shape them into a heart on a sheet pan (make sure this pan has sides so the grease doesn’t get all over your oven!)
  • Bake for 18 – 25 minutes (or until done)
  • Serve with a heart shaped Egg!

Feel The Love!
