Have you ever felt like your vegetables were not to be trusted? Cast a baleful eye at your pile of peas and wondered if you saw them glare back? If so, you might see something strangely sinister about the Angolan born (now London based) artist Alida Rodrigues‘ produce themed portraits. These hapless Victorian men and women find themselves with onion stalks, pea pods, and artichokes in place of their heads. Even scarier, in some cases, their family members barely seem to have noticed. It’s the kind of thing that might send you running to your fridge in search of bacon. On the other hand, if you’re the kind of person that makes friends with salad, maybe all you see is a set of creatively quirky collages.
