Sarah Illenberger is a Berlin-based freelance artist with a unique (and heavily food-themed) editorial portfolio whose work appears in newspapers and magazines such as the New York Times Magazine, Neon, and Vanity Fair. Illenberger uses a bevy of real and fabricated food items in her work where no medium (is seemingly) off limits: Reconstructed paper foodstuffs become Chili Con Carne, food metamorphoses into a disturbing collection of faces, and paper muffin cups quickly become makeshift headphones. Although most of her work is freelance, some pieces are available for sale.
