Geometric Food Art Astonishes, Even Without the Help of Photoshop
Art, at its core, is meant to illicit a sense of pure wonder. Whether done artificially or naturally, is an artist’s preference and both mediums have produced prodigious work throughout history. However, in an age where digital technology has become cohesive with how we imagine the world, tools such as Photoshop and Gimp have enabled artists to manipulate art on an increasingly artificial level — raw photos twisted to perfection or warped into images portraying scenarios not achievable by natural means are the norm. While many will argue both the benefits and disadvantages of the ongoing digital revolution, one thing is certain: To see extraordinary photos void of any digital manipulation is a rarity in this era.
Which is why Geometric Food Art by Turkish artist Sakir Gökçebag is a particularly breathtaking series of artworks. The project consists of various vegetables and fruit arranged into striking geometric visual patterns of perfect circles and straight lines. No Photoshop, just a meticulous eye for detail and a skillful artist’s patience. A juxtaposition of the natural forced into unnatural positions through natural means. We’ll clean up the mess now that you’re mindblown.
