Declaring, “I like to create art that can lure, charm, tease, disarm and surprise,” Peter Anton produces oversized, lushly detailed, delicious-looking, and subtly unsettling sculptures of food, especially sweets. “I have an innate reverence for the things we eat,” he says. “Food brings people together and there is no better way to celebrate life. . . . The sensual nature of the works stimulates basic human needs and desires that generate cravings and passion.” Like Claes Oldenberg, Anton plays with scale, blowing up donuts, lollipops, boxes of chocolate, and banana splits into absurdly large, somewhat menacing proportions. Viewers are more likely to be consumed by his colorful confections than able to consume them. Concerned with craft as much as concept, Anton carefully renders each detail of his sculptures, down to every last sugar crystal.
