Past Exhibition / Farhad Moshiri
March 03 - May 26, 2007
This exhibition sees Moshiri adopt a more direct approach towards his subject. Using a cake icing dispenser to sculpt elaborate patterns on canvas, his theme is literal to the title of the exhibition: candy.
Despite over the top ornamentation, including Swarovsky Crystals and Baroque drapery, Moshiri's paintings maintain a minimalist elegance, while simultaneously questioning the connotations of good taste and the implications of aesthetics.
