The second in artratcafe CAFÉ’s new series Playing With Your Food presents Prudence Emma Staite from Gloucestershire, England. Prudence is a contemporary artist who works almost entirely in chocolate, although as you see above she also works in other edible mediums. Prudence wants people to experience her art with all of their senses. She creates jewelry, paintings, sculpture, games and even entire rooms from chocolate –but the sweet stuff isn’t her only favorite medium – She also made sculptures of the Colosseum, Spanish Steps and Pope Benedict XVI using enough pizza dough to make 500 pizzas for an exhibit at the Museum of London.
This is sweet and certainly food for thought. It reminds us that anything can be used as a medium for expression. Prudence’s use of everyday edibles to express her creativity is inspiring and opens us up to outside-the-chocolate box thinking. What will you do with all of those left over goodies from Christmas?
