The Mad Chef
Cleveland Performance Art Festival, OH; The Jack Tilton Galley, New York City; and other venues
As the persona of The Mad Chef, the artist challenges the confines of role and identity, breaking through internal boundaries in discovery of uncharted territories. Live and video installments have been presented at numerous venues. At the Jack Tilton Gallery in New York, audiences are invited to paint with colored cake frosting, replicating historical masterpieces and sugar-coating arranged still lives. Cakes become canvases, to be critiqued and then eaten.
