Artist Jay Hardman creates small scale cake sculptures that examine the chaotic landscape of urban renewal and sprawl taking place in American cities. The methodical dividing and carving up of neighborhoods, mirrors the way a cake is consumed. Jay explains, "The cakes have an inherent ability to captivate and gratify an audience both visually and conceptually. They are profoundly linked to our senses of desire and fantasy, so as a material it is ideal for the surreal landscapes I create."
His first solo show titled "Unsustainable", opens this month, at Space 1026 in Philadelphia.
