Between beauty, escapism and desire

Cakes and pools, what do these two have in common? apparently nothing, but I found myself so drawn to Jacinda Russel work, I have recently discovered. Desirable, unattainable, funny and joyous.

Jacinda Russel_Nine Fake Cakes & Nine Bodies of WaterAmerican artist, Jacinda Russel thought about bringing together in her art photo series ‘Nine Fake Cakes & Nine Bodies of Water’, 2012, a ‘project that’s main premise is beauty, escapism and desire’.
‘Cakes – both real and fake – appeared to make people happy and I wondered, most simply, if they could make me happy too.’ says artist Jacinda Russel
