                                      THE ARTIST at the TABLE with a Still life

  When first I began this project, Food in the Arts in 2001,  I went straight to our local library and checked out  Sybillee Ebert-Schifferer's Still Life: A History (1999). It seemed a reliable place to start, and it was, but I was more interested in 20th and 21st century still life pieces that had evolved from this 18th century genre. Later, I read with interest an admiration Kenneth Bendiner's excellent Food in Painting ((Reaktion, 2004), which clearly presents a scholarly sweep of all genres from the Renaissance up to the end of the twentieth century.

(Metal car parts, re-purposed)

This 20th century image could be one kind of still life. It connotes a car wreck due to alcohol consumption.

The pieces are actually gnawed by the artist. She calls them "installations."

 Jennifer Rubell
Food writer turned conceptual artist Jennifer Rubell creates whimsical culinary installations using food as an integral art medium. Whether it’s padding a room with 1,600 cones of pink cotton candy, hanging 1,521 doughnuts in a grid formation at the perfect tilt or presenting guests with 2,ooo lbs. of BBQ ribs, Rubell’s large-scale interactive installations are fascinating food art. The best part: guests 
are invited to interact (i.e. eat) the sculpture/
