Artist Scott Hove was born and raised in San Francisco in 1968 and currently lives and works across the bay in the city of Oakland. It has been said that his sculptural work, usually consisting of dangerous cakes and baked goods, occupies a sort of limbo between Taxidermy and the Culinary Arts. Hove is most well known for a traveling exhibition titled Cakeland, which involves a series of tasty wall-mounted and standing cakes—complete with assortments of fangs, tongues, and enough aggression for a pack of wolves. They are too damn sexy.
Hove also had a solo show last April entitled ‘Pussy Jihad’ at. La Luz de Jesus Gallery, Los Angeles. Next Month he will be included in the Hi Fructose Magazine Traveling Group Exhibition, at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art,
“My ongoing series of sculptures and installations, collectively called ‘Cakeland’, addresses our notions of comfort, pleasure, celebration and their dark counterparts in the form of carefully crafted artificial cakes,” said Hove. “Intended to at once attract and repel, each of my cakes and installations will engage the viewer’s emotions with a sense of imminent beauty and satisfaction, quickly followed with impending threat.”
