‘The biggest oven in the world’
The “Baked Series” is a collection of oversized polyurethane cakes, cupcakes, and macarons. In both size and appearance these pieces are an outward expression of her tempestuous universe of emotions.
‘‘Our lives are full of so many distractions, exaggerations and falsehoods. The over-commercialization of society bombards us with illusory friendships and overrated products - and it does this by manipulating our emotions and desire for excitement.
With their huge size, pastel loveliness, delicious appearance, and synthetic material construction, each piece of my ‘bake’ is a lie - a sarcastic memorial to how we overindulge in what we know is bad for us. Their hyper-realism is just as fake and artificial as the exaggerated emotions, overrated products, and artificial people we consume in life.
During the baking process each ‘pastry’ becomes excessively overweight and obese, just as we do if we cannot resist the temptation of their real life equivalent. But we cannot cut these things from our lives entirely because just like dessert, they are part of the enjoyment of life.’’
