Artist of the Day- Janine Antoni (click on image to see more)

I don’t choose enough 3D artists. The contemporary ones are often hard. Hard to explain in a few words and often hard for me to understand enough to explain. So one of these pieces, titled ‘Lick and Lather’ shows 2 portrait busts, one in chocolate and the other in soap. The artist gradually ‘deconstructs’ the busts by either licking them…the chocolate, or by washing with them…the lather.

See what I mean? It’s hard. I will say that I saw this piece in Washington some time ago. There were like…8 of each material in a gallery. The viewer walked between the two rows. The smell was lovely! To learn more…there’s a great Art 21 video you can find on YouTube.
