Partly food sculptures and partly fine arts, the Vernon Spicer Pasta Paintings portray beautiful scenery using various types of uncooked pasta.
Spaghetti, noodles, lasagna and macaroni are some of the materials that Vernon Spicer works with, assembling the delicate and brittle ingredients along his canvas to add depth and texture to his artwork. In his interview with the Montgomery Advertiser, the artist explains that pasta can be a very fickle material to work with, requiring time and patience to get it just right. On top of the noodles, paintings of famous landmarks such as the Pettus Bridge, the AME Church and he plans on creating a Mount Rushmore piece as well.
Even when complete, the Vernon Spicer Pasta Paintings need to be handled with care in order to be maintained.
