Cake’s Gonna Eat Me

at

Oakland sculptor Scott Hove’s inedible (not that you’re tempted) sculptural cakes, complete with teeth, maws and fetishistic spikes. Sez he:

This body of work is a result of self-education, a lifelong interest in artificial food and objects, and an obsession with the relationship between the beautiful and the brutal. 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.
