Em pointed me to Heidi Voet’s work. The artist splits her time between Brussels and Shanghai. In her series Fruit & Vegetables, Voet took images of naked women from Chinese magazines, cropping them and visually completing the bodies with fresh vegetables that will soon age, rot, and decompose, in contrast to the unrealistic eternal beauty and youth pictured in the magazines. A humorous reality check.
Be sure to check out some of Voet’s other work on her site. Her cinderblock shoes are fun.
