Famous Architecture Recreated with Gingerbread and Candy

If you look closely, you’ll find that these detailed architectural close-ups are filled with surprises! Artist Henry Hargreaves and stylist Caitlin Levin used gingerbread and candy to create the buildings as part of a Dylan’s Candy Bar display at the Art Basel winter festival in Miami. The black and white images feature edible materials that were photographed to give the illusion of large structural designs.

Each world famous gallery, including the Guggenheim (New York), The Louvre (Paris), and the Tate Modern (London), was carved, assembled, and glued by hand to produce the incredibly realistic sculptures. With great accuracy, Hargreaves and Levin achieved expressive results by using a wide range of delicious materials.

Hargreaves has a vivid imagination that is evident in all of his work, ranging from a death row inmate’s last meal to rare scanner bed fashion shots. According to his bio, “What unites his work is his restless and curious mind, a fascination with the unusual or quirky, and a desire to see how photography can illuminate the world and spark conversation.”

Meticulous Landscape Paintings Beautifully Represent Intangible Emotional States

Artist Crystal Liu intimately ties her emotional states to beautiful abstract paintings. In large-scale works, she constructs landscapes that are metaphors for the intangible forces that drive us. Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
