Kelly Ichinose is amazing. Some of her photos wander into Cindy Sherman territory, but others are pure Ichinose.

The artist has a talent for creating hilarious archetypes (see especially her series of food goddesses).

I see her cereal divas as funny, contempo manifestations of goddesses like Ceres (or Demeter, if you prefer the Greek).

This troll like creature here is pure spite, all malevolence and contradiction.

The fingers almost seem to turn into Medea's snakes growing out of the creature's head.

A bravura performance as well as a great photograph.
