The Cookie Connection

Photography by Sandy Skoglund (1)

Photographer Sandy Skoglund took these conceptual pictures way back in 1978. They are timeless works of art. It is very interesting to see how she connected food patterns to wallpaper and what looks to be tablecloths. The last image was taken in the same year, however not food related, but still motif related.

Notes about the artist (from bio):

Skoglund moved to New York City in 1972, where she started working as a conceptual artist, dealing with repetitive, process-oriented art production through the techniques of mark-making and photocopying. In the late seventies Skoglund’s desire to document conceptual ideas led her to teach herself photography. This developing interest in photographic technique became fused with her interest in popular culture and commercial picture making strategies, resulting in the directorial tableau work she is known for today. Skoglund currently lives in Jersey City, New Jersey.
