A wonderful feast for the eyes, curated by Olivier Castaing, the show in Limoges, France features 14 artists from around the world working in ceramic. With:
Anna Barlow, Bachelot & Caron, Charlotte Coquen, Christina Erives, Jae Yong Kim, Juujuu Kim, Yuko Kuramatsu, Kaori Kurihara, Shayna Leib, Susan Nemeth, Marie Rancillac, Dong Won Shin, and Jessica Stoller.
A culmination of 3 years of work and research, this exhibition has featured both my French Dessert Series and the American Series side-by-side for the first time. A huge thank you to Helene Huret and Olivier Castaing for such a great display. For detailed images of the above desserts, click here.
“A raspberry set on a piping of whipped cream set on a crispy tuile, itself set on a bavaroise; tarte au citron, forêt noire, Mont Blanc, all those exquisite French pastries transformed into masterpieces of illusion in the hands of Shayna Leib, who indulges a passion for hyperrealism with fascinating technical virtuosity. She combines glass-which she has worked with for more than twenty years-with porcelain, creating perfect replicas of forty extremely sophisticated pastries, and setting them against forty American desserts. Culture against culture. In this elaborate trick, everything is artificial. Every detail fools the eye: glossy icing, chocolate ribbons, mousses, golden crusts, fruits, textures, sculpted sugar, colors. The cremè de la cremè, a feast for the eyes-but you could chip a tooth on it!”
