The recent defacing of a seminal work by the great Mark Rothko at Britain’s Tate Modern Gallery incited international outrage, but the Brooklyn artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin put their displeasure to creative use.

Taking their cue from the marred painting’s provenance as part of a failed triptych commission for New York’s The Four Seasons restaurant, Hargreaves and Levin have impressively interpreted these works in edible matter–grains of rice–and, to boot, injected a bit of levity by entitling the series Mark Rice-Ko.
