One would think Cecille David had thoughts of sugar plums dancing in her head when she created 'Faux Foods.' With flying ice cream and aerial SPAM, the artist has captured fun, surrealist imagery of everyday foods. With the introduction to conceptual mass consumption by Jeremy Scott at Moschino, the world has become normalized to the idea of surrealism.

Each image from the 'Faux Foods' collection by David leaves the consumer feeling fresh and fun. David focuses on the mass production of food and food coloring in this exhibition. Meant with a side of humor, the collection emphases artificiality in food. With products like donuts, ramen noodle packs and canned ham, David has wisely chosen her artificial items of prey. The piece is fun and flirty, while remaining dynamic.
