Florent Tanet was hoping to give people a reprieve from the dreariness of winter with his series “A Colorful Winter”. His series features precision-cut fruits and vegetables cleverly arranged to give the viewer a startling contrast. What’s amazing and amusing about his work is the painstaking care he took to make sure that the pieces of fruit or vegetable fit together seamlessly. He had apples and onions cut and connected in such a way as to resemble caterpillars. A stalk of leek had pieces of carrot and cucumber grafted into its stalk. One of my favorites is a couple of halved green and red cabbages arranged to look like a single head of cabbage. This series was on display at the Le Bon Marché department store in Paris.
