Today’s artist is a painter whose collection of candied still lifes are so sweet, you’ll get a cavity just looking at them! New Mexico artist K. Henderson creates fabulously graphic paintings of the sweetest treats.
Part of the appeal of these candy coated canvases is not just the subject matter ( who doesn’t love candy?! ), but the way the artist has juxtaposed the brightly colored sweets against a rich black background or graphic-pop black and white stripes. Old fashioned candies appear fresh and modern.
Any artist who can make licorice look delicious has my vote. I mean doesn’t that look scrumptious? And I normally hate licorice, but I think I might be persuaded by the pretty colors and textures.
