Artist QIMMYSHIMMY creates deliciously gruesome sculptures of desserts – with a few extra ingredients! At first glance, you might simply see a delightful plate of macaroons, or a beautiful birthday cake. But look closer and you’ll find human flesh, severed baby heads and eyeballs incorporated into the clay cakes.
The artist explained; ““My works have always been about finding the balance between sweetness and horror, and trying to find a way a viewer can look at them and feel repulsed yet enticed. That is the reason why I work often with subjects that we desire—desserts, pastries, etc. I grew up quite an oddball with an overly imaginative mind, and wonder if things are more than what we think they are. With my work I try to push our preconceived ideas and associations with objects, which dark humor seem quite effective in doing so.”
