January 25, 2017
In focus for this weeks Art We Heart is Brooklyn based artist and baker
. We discovered her (you guessed it!) on Instagram and became instantly obsessed with her feed, which is filled with cool off the cuff, laid-back outfits, she puts together with such non-chalant ease your instantly questioning, how does she do that? Not to mention her immaculately presented and delicious looking baked goods.
In an interview with
she has mention she started baking at 15 and got into art during her college years. She also mentions how she's not that into the whole "
Food is art
" mantra, but rather sees food as a material to achieve a final artistic product: "
I like food precisely because it’s not art. It’s utilitarian, it’s critical, it’s fuel, and then it disappears. When I use food in my art is a prop or a medium- it is no longer food in the way it once was." As for the reason she incorporates food into her art, Lexie points out the convenience of it. Baking is how she makes a living so might as well put some art into it!
