Cake Paintings – MARCH Serves Up a Delicious New Show

This month, MARCH presents Cake Paintings — an exhibition of works on paper by Gary Komarin. Inspired by his mother, a consummate baker, and his father, an architect, Komarin’s Cake Paintings cleverly explore the intersection of the domestic with the architectural. The water-based enamel and spackle paintings are rendered on paper bags. The reoccurring cake iconography is endlessly evocative — lending itself to many layers of interpretation and the spontaneous, bold lines, combined with the unusual media, strike a delicate balance between sophistication and simplicity. The show is on view through November 2012.
