These one-of-kind candies
are so realistic you'll be
tempted to eat them!
About this series - Reese’s Peanut Butter
Cup was a part and was exhibited at the artist’s 1993 one man show;
“Chocolate Covered World” at the Northwood University, in West Palm
Beach, Florida. The multi-media exhibit depicted a make-believe and a
feel-good world that we live in – a chocolate covered world with a very
sticky core! The show attracted over 3,000 visitors during its month long
. . His large-scale depictions of candy bars are faithful reproductions. Yet the
works have a resonance that takes us beyond the object we see. We bring our own
cultural baggage to the picture, of course. Perhaps our own childhood memories.
And we really re-see the image again after years of having taken it for granted.
Rather than displaying coyness, the artist has managed to convey a refreshing
directness in his approach to his subjects. Rez convinces us of his sincerity.
There’s the innocent fascination for the objects of a new culture, not to
mention the childhood memories of brightly packaged candies . . ."
