In your lifetime, you spend an average of 3 years in the kitchen. Cooking splatters are often enough found on the wall, but have you ever thought about art in your kitchen? In a space where you spend that much time, it’s not a bad idea to furnish and decorate the room according to your own taste. And that doesn’t have to be done with boring kitchen wall decorations. Go for art in the kitchen, something unique.
Why art in the kitchen
The kitchen is perhaps a somewhat underestimated room in the house, especially when it comes to decoration. In the living room and bedrooms you can usually find the necessary decoration, but in the kitchen, walls all too often remain empty. And that’s a shame, because it may be a functional space, but isn’t it also the starting point for many happy memories? The kitchen is a place where many pleasant meals have been prepared, where people have cooked together, where blood, sweat and tears have gone into delicious and sometimes unsuccessful dishes. A place where learning is done and enjoyed and where creativity is given space. And a place where we spend a surprising amount of time.
Reason enough to give the kitchen a suitable decoration. Photos and paintings that you would normally hang in the living room or bedroom are fine, of course. But with culinary photo art, you bring appropriate and inspiring art into the home. Art that can find its natural place in the kitchen.
Culinary photo art
Art in the kitchen stimulates your creativity. And what excites your culinary creativity more than culinary photo art? Angélique Schmeinck, one of only two female master chefs in the Netherlands, has managed to capture her passion for cooking on film in a very special way. Her unique and controversial works show ingredients with a story, a feeling and a unique meaning.
This form of fine art photography is not an everyday wall decoration in the kitchen. These photographs are a true eye-catcher and give the kitchen a unique character. Moreover, you will experience that Angélique’s passion for cooking is contagious. This culinary photo art will stimulate your creativity to the fullest and encourage you to embark on new culinary adventures in the kitchen. And because of the variety of different themes, there is a good chance that there is something that suits you.
If you love the flavors of the sea
For example, there is the theme Sea Treasures. Angélique has captured her deep fascination for the treasures from the depths of the sea in an ode to Mother Nature. With the photographs of a unique sea treasure, an ingredient from the sea, she dives below the surface in narrative form. There’s “The Funeral,” for example, where shrimp in an exotic shell appear to be attending a funeral. Or the beautiful blue colors in “Crown Jewels”: two Oosterschelde lobsters with a diamond in their tail. All of the unique photographs in the Sea Treasures series have a raw feel, where the colors almost make you taste the salty taste of the sea.
For when you love the splendor and deliciousness of fruits and vegetables
In the theme “Natural grace“, fruits and vegetables ripening on branches or mysteriously hiding are enticed into a tasteful dance. The infinite richness of form, smell, color and taste is captured in a picture of dancing fruits and vegetables. For example, “Temptation” lets you experience the temptation and delight of fresh strawberries, and in “Take carrot” the frenzied color of carrots is eye-catching. In all pictures, vegetables and fruits dance or float in a colorful palette of shape and flavor. With art from the “Natural grace” theme, you bring life, movement and temptation to the kitchen.
For when you’re not afraid to break with tradition
In the “Culinary modernism” theme, every ingredient is captured in a new, unique way. Each ingredient becomes more than it was, in form, texture, color and flavor. Sometimes with a wink, as in “Tripping Shrimp,” where a shrimp becomes ecstatic from a pinch of powder from a citrus peel. Sometimes inspiring, as in “Happy Cow,” where a Côte de boeuf has been given a face in a beautiful color spectacle thanks to a wig of beet. But always special and unique, with colors and flavors that burst from the photo. Kitchen art from the “culinary modernism” theme fits into both traditional and contemporary kitchens.
A makeover for your kitchen
While everyday wall decorations can at best spruce up your kitchen, a photo from a culinary art collection can give your kitchen a real makeover. Whether it’s for your own kitchen or as a gift, the tasteful individuality, atmosphere and attention that art gives your kitchen will noticeably increase the pleasure you take in cooking. The photos from all culinary themes have been photographed and signed by master chef Angélique Schmeinck and come with a certificate of authenticity.
