Scott Hove, Cakeland sculptures, Acrylic and Mixed Media on Polyurethane Foam
All beautiful things are equipped with a defense mechanism, to protect against the predations of those who seek to possess. The mechanizations of the predator also have a terrifying elegance. The two working together tell a very old story, and are the basis of many archetypes.
Why then, to use an absurd media like fake cake to describe such a story? We all love cake and what it signifies….These sculptures celebrate the beauty, rapaciousness and absurdity we all participate in. (via)
