The inside scoop on food in Los Angeles

Decadent feast, calorie-free


A calorie-free sweets feast sounds enticing. Of course, you don't actually get to eat anything. But the "Sweet Show," opening Thursday downtown, might be the next best thing.

It features the work of four artists: Lori Larusso, Abbie Zuidema, Deborah Faas and Jenny Kanzler.

"Sweet Show" runs Thursday, April 9, through May 9 at Phyllis Stein Gallery, 207 West 5th St. in the Spring Arts Tower.

About the artists:

Lori Larusso explores themes of domesticity and consumption. Her views on consumer society are represented in her choice of color, composition and surface attention.

Jenny Kanzler’s work conveys an ideal scenario of the dark and innocent connection between human attachment and comfort with foods.

Deborah Faas has been painting portraits since the early 1990s.

Abbie Zuidema explores desire, consumption and pleasure in her watercolors.

I've just read this sorry excuse for an article - twice.
And I'm still trying to work out if it is referring to a show about 1) food, 2) art, 3) food as art, 4) art that looks like food, or what? Please can someone enlighten me, because whoever wrote piece this certainly hasn't.
