A sweeping stroke across a white canvas tints the woven threads a bright green, crimson and blue. The brush is a master of deception, molding forms of color where no shapes exist. Casting shadows of dark and light where no shadows falls. The white is the blank nothingness at our core that we constantly try to fill. The bright color, that is our guise, the beauty of a sugar coated, candy floss skin.
Sugarcoat Melting is Ahmad Sabbagh and Micheal Schinköthe (Typism)’s exploration of the various hues of human nature; its gluttony and greed, its broken will, its mutilated self. With sharp wit and exuberant palette, the artwork reveals the darkness with lighthearted, cynical tones.
