Stonehenge recreated in miniature with Rice Krispies. A bearskin rug made from a single Gummi Bear. A treehouse built into a single stalk of broccoli.
These charming, diminutive creations are the work of Minneapolis-based artist Brock Davis
, who captured the attention of LA Weekly recently. In a blog posting
, the newspaper featured photos of Davis' work, along with an appreciation of his style.
"In some pieces, Davis elevates a humble product, often iconic out of ubiquity in its own right, by manipulating it to resemble an iconic image," the writer noted, pointing to a work that recreates a Pink Floyd album cover out of Dorito bags.
The blog states that in Davis' world, junk food can be medium, muse, and, perhaps even a message.
