Bad Fruit: Rotten Fruits Transformed into Art Piece

by Kathleen Ryan

To denounce our society’s culture of food waste, New York-based artist Kathleen Ryan has created ‘Bad Fruit’. These oversized non-edible, faux moldy fruits are adored with pearls to create intricate fruit-like pieces of art.

Starting with a 70 cm wide polystyrene base, she uses precious and semi-precious stones to create a real contrast to the repulsive moulds it represents. Lemons, oranges and peaches are here to make us wonder about the notion of beauty, ugliness, repulsion and on our mass-production and waste society. What a great project Kathleen!
