Scott Hove is an American self-taught artist who currently exhibits at the Think Tank Galery in Los Angeles. What is original about his work is that it consists of 650 square meters dedicated entirely to sugar but with a disturbing touch, which is achieved by mixing elements that are repulsive to some extent Do you want to know your particular sugary universe?
Entering the world of Hove is like penetrating inside a large cake, where everything is attractive and beautiful, even cheesy, to discover that behind the pleasure that beauty produces, razors or wolf jaws hide, despite the fact that they are made of plastic, contrast fiercely with the meringue layers that cover walls and ceilings and that they manage to affect the viewer in the deepest.

For the artist, we live in a dual world: light and dark, good and bad. With this exhibition, it aims at the same time to attract and repelWith each cake you want to wrap the viewer's emotions with a sense of beauty and satisfaction, quickly followed by an imminent threat. That is why this work is presented as a juxtaposition: intimidating elements, such as a razor or a crystal, which are wrapped in a fluffy and delicious glaze.
The exhibition will be open until March 13 and the visit is free during the day. You need to book at night because there are a series of scheduled events that include dinner, pop-up brunch, performance artists, poetry readings and other thematic activities related to gastronomy.
