Eye Candy

  

Art as eye candy! These look too good to be fake. But they are. Check ’em out http://peteranton.com/

Peter’s premise:

I like to create art that can lure, charm, tease, disarm and surprise. My sculptures put viewers in a vulnerable state so that I can communicate with their inner selves in a more honest and direct way.

Hmm, does this mean that realism can be arresting and disarming? Andy Warhol rings a bell. Or the ’70’s artist who lives in San Francisco who paints pictures of cakes… Sounds like? Let’s play charades because I cannot remember his name and no amount of googling will get me there.

Oh wait, Wayne Thibaud!!! He paints objects other than confections, but the Philips Gallery in DC a few years ago focused on just his sweet works. And they were sweeeeeeeeet!
