Brekky Bricks w/ a glass of Red Oxide Turpentine

As a child of the 80s I grew up with fond memories of still-life, photographic prints of breads, pastas, fruit and vegetables captured in the literal style of the era. The pictures hung in the houses of my family and friends and I would spend hours identifying all the ingredients and looking at every detail.

Nowadays, the humble still life has grown out of favour. Instead, colourful, reprinted advertisements of vintage European beverages add smiles to kitchen walls across Australia. And so, I challenged myself to put a contemporary twist on the food art trend of the 80s. This resulted in my series Inedible - photos of food made from unconventional ingredients.

I handcrafted a lot of pieces for this body of work, and it was a lot of fun to do. It now seems fitting that the first work in the series, Brekky Bricks w/ a glass of Red Oxide Turpentine, uses some of the elementary ingredients associated with my own childhood craft sessions.

  Inedible by TQ Lee

Part visual pun, part social comment on convenience food, Inedible is a still life photographic series of meals made from unconventional ingredients.

Every element in these dishes
are considered inedible in insolation. Together, do they
whet or surpress your appetite?
