Marie Antoinette is having her toenails painted. She’s surrounded by luscious cakes and tarts. What an image! I wanted to create a shrine for Marie made of tarts. My tarts will look mouthwatering from a distance but they are inedible, formed out of old barrettes, doll house figures and plastic fruit. I used a plaster image of my upper and lower teeth. I made whipped cream using white tile grout and lots of glitter. A few friends came over to make tarts, and when they were done I made many more. Thank you Allison, Paul, Preston and Galen.
Here are some photos of Preston and his roommates hard at work. You can see our work at my exhibit at Lillstreet Art Center now.
