Stitching It Real – all about fast food


all about fast food

This month I’ve gathered some of the best fast food soft sculptures from around the world. I feel like junk food is a very rewarding object of interest but also a bit tricky. It’s hard to do something different. You need to be very creative to make your hamburger stood out in front of the other. I think the artists I chose for this column did an excellent job with this.

I hope you will enjoy these soft works of art as much as I do!

LOR-K

Lor-K is a French artist working in Paris. She uses abandoned objects to create sculptures on the street. She finds them and reconstructs them directly at the place of discovery, before they are-abandoned. These objects are then fashioned a new identity and staged in the urban space.”

 “The projects are materializing into sculptures where the object and space are dependent on each other. Ink in a place, a time and a specific context, the work is in-movable and therefore doomed to disappear. Each creation is unique and unrepeatable seeking to regain the first ephemerality of the art. She then uses her  photographs, prototypes, videos, sculptures manipulated or written that can recreate the creative process into an exhibition.”

I have been developing my 2D and 3D creative desires for the past 30 years. My education and professional work experience has developed in: Boston, New York City, LA and now warm sunny South Florida. With a degree in Graphic Design and a very unique look at life, I have enjoyed expressing my creativity not only in graphics, but window display, costume, prop design and production, for Mattel Toys, MTV, Nickelodeon, Macy’s, Gibson Guitar or Red Bull to name a few, I give a unique twist to whatever comes my way.. It is with all this previous creative experience that I now bring to  the table my most recent and extensive work of Fantasy shoe sculptures” says the artist.

My initial attraction to the process of knotting was its immediacy and the fact that little specialized equipment is required, which allows for great latitude in approach as to design, concept and technique” says the artist.
