Liz Hickok is a San Francisco based artist working in photography, video, sculpture, installation, and currently, Jell-O. The following photographs are from her exhibits featuring various San Francisco landscapes and Scottsdale, AZ Center of the Arts. The Jell-O sculptures decay quickly leaving only the photographs and a few videos to display her works of art. The following descriptions and some of the photographs are from Liz Hickok’s website. The other photos are from photographers who attended her exhibitions between 2004 and 2007.
Similar to making a movie set, Liz Hickok added backdrops, which were often painted, along with elements such as mountains or trees. The exhibit was dramatically lighted from the back or underneath.
The Scottsdale in Jell-O project, was an assembly of hundreds of miniature buildings made of Jell-O, lit from below, and put on display for viewers to see and smell. The pieces represented both the existing area around the Civic Center and the envisioned areas around the new Waterfront development on the Arizona Canal, with future development cast as clear buildings and trees.
