Strange Meat Sculptures That Will Make You Feel Incredibly Uncomfortable

These meet sculptures are a fleshy foray into the hybrid world of still life art and butcher shop aesthetic.

Created by Israeli artist Roni Landa, these polymer sculptures look like uncomfortable slices of red meat. She combines elegant imagery of high tea settings with momento mori imagery like human teeth, moths, and flesh.  

“In her work she attends to the dark and complex sides of our being,” Roni's statement for the series reads.

“She wishes to recreate the moment of acknowledging and meeting death face to face, an issue which occupies her from childhood."

In her work she attends to the dark and complex sides of our being.

The combination of gilded cups and raw textures is unnerving. But that's exactly what Roni is aiming for in her work.

"This tension aims to create a dialog with the observer – on one hand, at first glance, a small, known, and easy on the eyes work while on the other hand, a very complex, sensual, rough, dark and disturbing image," she continues.

"This experience is accented by the mostly monotonic color scheme – choosing soft colors creates a naïve, soft, pop like look and texture, that is contradictory to the harsh experiences at its base.”
