Hannes Bend Unveils New Eye Candy

12.29.09 Will Sherman

Next month, artist Hannes Bend is showing off a series of sugary sculptures, casting cavities of iconic form. The hard candy collection, featuring a crucifix, Durer’s “Praying Hands,” and a trophy buck, will be exhibited alongside a new series of abstract paintings by the Berlin-based artist. Sharing a playfulness with their medium, these works will be unveiled as Half Gallery opens Bend’s “Endlich,” his first solo show in the States.

“Endlich,” January 15 – February 11, Half Gallery, 208 Forsyth Street
