Using everyday items collected from around the house and garden, artist Vanessa Mckeown styles ordinary materials into playful ‘edible’ items. her series of  ‘fruloons & vegaloons’ include a bundle of cherry tomatoes, a batch of grapes, an eggplant, coconut, banana and pineapple humorously reconsidered as a balloon-based species.

Artificial materials meet actual vegetation, forming surreal, physical collages of the two distinctly different mediums. examples include the simply inflated pink-toned plastic orbs carefully tethered to a real tomato vine, a blown-up yellow tube tucked in between the peel of a banana, and tiny purple spheres gingerly attached to a grape branch.
