Foodart by Thea Herzig
Traditional Artist

Thea Herzig


Thea Herzig,1969, was born in Germany, but has lived and worked in Switzerland for 30 years. She is a pastel artist who has dedicated herself to "food art". In large-format paintings, fruits and vegetables are arranged into so-called "food patterns" and interpret the classic still life in her own way.

Art Practice

All motifs are arranged, photographed and assembled by the artist. From a large number of photos, the final composition of the picture is created through sketchy preliminary drafts.

The artist applies the pigments mainly with her fingers and thus, in a very slow process, the hyper-realistic "food patterns" emerge, which want to seduce you to bite into one of the depicted apples or pears.
