Look alive, vegetables!
Have you ever seen root vegetables with such personality? Radishes looking so happy? Celeryroot that seems almost pensive? These are the work of contemporary botanical artist Sally Jacobs, who has a show starting this week at TAG Gallery in Santa Monica's Bergamot Station, says she gets her inspiration from Los Angeles' farmers markets. I don't know about you, but if I saw vegetables looking like that, I'd be more likely to adopt them than roast them.
