The sandwich artist

Mostly I slap some Vegemite between two slices of bread. If I’m feeling fancy, it’s ham, cheese and thin slices of tomato. So, I wonder, would my kids appreciate me replicating the fine work of the ‘Sandwich Artist’?

Artists Tae Kitakata and Brittany Powell began Low-Commitment Projects as a way of sharing creative concepts. Each week, Kitakata and Powell take it in turns to undertake simple but creative project. It’s a neat idea given that these two friends live at opposite ends of the US (one in Hawaii and one in Oregon).

Powell kicked off the project with sandwich art – I really admire her placement of cheese and her clever mustard patterns. And if you are thinking they look a little familiar, you’re right – Powell was inspired by the likes of Mondrian, Hirst and Rothko. You might never place a pickle in the same way again!

Make sure you also have a look at Kitakata’s beautiful paper chains and clever ‘shadow play’ drawings and Powell’s fun ‘Haircuts that Rock’ project.
