"Happy Fatty Pure Lard" by Nouar
by sabine7 / March 9, 2009


You Look Good Enough To Eat! is the name of the latest exhibition of work by Nouar. Edible subjects are presented as pin-ups and poster children in a vintage style that references nostalgia but hints at something slightly more macabre. The paintings are appetizing, but do happy faces on anthropomorphized characters really make consumer culture more palatable? It must, as this manipulates us into noticing items in a completely different light. It is only when we take a second look that we may hesitate. Or not.
