Let Me Eat Cake, which coincidentally falls on Bastille Day, is going to be one of sweet, decadence mixed with extravagant color, texture, smell and more. It is going to be a room filled with luscious desserts that come in the form of paintings, sculpture, photography, a real art cake and more!!

Kristine has always loved the Baroque and Rococo. This show may be a celebration of food, the sustenance of life. but it also has an underlying current of how food is used for comfort as she is discovering while working through a life of disordered eating.

“Let Me Eat Cake” may be an homage to those who are able to overcome adversity. It may be sweetness overload or a diabetic coma. It may be a commentary on the state of the U.S. Right now.  It may be just a way to bring together many friends and celebrate the life we are able to live in Los Angeles.

Author

Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
