Damien Hirst and Felix Gonzales-Torres “Visual Candy” Installation

In a bid to compare similarities in the way both artists use ‘Candy’ as a theme, Blain|Southern gallery is holding an exclusive exhibition showcasing archival works from the late Felix Gonzales-Torres and Britain’s Damien Hirst. The show exhibits pieces created in the early 1990s, with Gonzales-Torres’ signature minimalistic installations mirroring Hirst’s abstract paintings from his ‘Visual Candy’ series, both of which showcase a similar use of color and texture. While Gonzales-Torres’ interactive pieces comment on the ever-changing state of life — with the audience able to touch and take the candy, thus altering the landscape — Hirst’s canvas work represent the psychological effect of medicinal pills. With just a few days left of the exhibition, which ends November 30, be sure to check it out at London’s Blain|Southern gallery on Hanover Square.
