Rather than arranging foods from one recipe into perfectly aligned rows of ingredients, German artist Nora Luther created this exciting collection where the items burst into the air in an organized chaos. Created in cooperation with Pavel Becker, Recipes is a series of deliciously presented foods in unexpected formations.
Curled pepper slices, wedges of lemon, thick slabs of meat, pinches of salt, and splashes of oil all scatter directly above the serving dish. With the edible elements suspended in mid-air, viewers are left to determine whether the items are falling towards the tabletop or if they are magically lifting up into the air, drifting off into surreal, weightless surroundings.
Luther says, “The image serves a foretaste not only of the dish but also of its preparation. The look of the ready cooked dish is left to your own imagination.”
