What Does She Do?
Jolita reflects her artistic skills by playing with food and creating portraits with it. Besides food, she uses other everyday objects to embody her ideas creating installations, performances, and illustrations.
Sweet potato, Chinese cabbage, red cabbage, cucumber, potato, celery root, and pumpkin are just some of the actors that take part in these fantastic art pieces.
The series of kisses “Hungry for Love” is not just vegetables that have fallen into the right places. Behind these organics are a real kiss and a true love story. No matter how long we look at these beets, potatoes, radishes, or pumpkins, we will still see two kissing people. The hunger for love cannot be disguised.
She portrays your weekend activities in the form of sandwiches, turns your love stories into a romantic dinner plate and you can see a scene from your favorite movie made out of a pizza crust.
“Every person told me a story about how they met. I did my best trying to express their feelings through food art.” she says about what she does.
Why Does She Create?
Finding out an artist’s “Why” helps us to understand and connect to their art at a deeper level. It’s always great to know and understand the individual pieces, but understanding the “why” of the artist gives a true understanding of how the art comes into the present.
“We need love like we need food. It does not fall within the defined frames. It disregards the standards and norms of society and erases all boundaries. Some of us are sensitive to the spices of love, so we can gradually get comfortable and accept other people’s love.” she says about her artwork.
