Cake Lady Cynthia

For international Women's day I collaborated with two artists to make a lady out of cake. I've made a lot of work with cake recently and Grace Belli, who works close to me in the studio works a lot with naked ladies, so when she suggested we collaborate, it seemed ideal. Tess Gray is another artist who works mostly with painting, but we also regularly collaborate on many cake based ventures, so she also joined the collaboration and became head of painting.

We were going to do a show together at Winchester School of Art, however an opportunity presented itself to hold an exhibition at Southampton University Student's Union, for International Women's Day, so we took it.

It required a lot of baking.

It was a well received part of the exhibition and got a lot of attention. We invited people to help themselves and eat of her flesh. The piece became an interactive performance.

I also organised the exhibition, which was curated by Letitia Northcott, I will post pictures of the show in another entry.
